UPDATE

What's new on buyers' wish lists

January 27, 2008|Ann Brenoff

What's in, what's out with home buyers in 2008? Mark Nash, author of several real estate books including "1001 Tips for Buying and Selling a Home," has completed his annual survey of buyer preferences.

Among his findings: Buyers want a destination bathroom -- the kind of getaway that has multiple task areas like a free-standing or throne bathtub, a flat-screen TV, wireless Internet and an in-home hair salon.

And because we love our pets so, how about a shower for Fido that he can simply step into instead of having to be hoisted?

Ugh to those chair-on-the-rail-systems for aging boomers who can't handle stairs; bring on the mini-elevators.

And who among us doesn't secretly long for a "statement" fireplace -- outdoors, of course.
