One long-time realtor says that in spite of a shift to younger prospects, her male buyers are still interested in garages, basements, attics, and crawlspaces. She said women are more interested in kitchens and the flow of the floor plan for entertaining. The National Association of Realtors recently made an in-depth study of what single male and female buyers want; what married couples want; and what unmarried couples want. Some of their findings: They asked single men and women what features were "very important," and 32 percent of men and 21 percent of women cited new kitchen appliances. Granite countertops were must-haves for 24 percent of men and 11 percent of women. And 19 percent of single men said a kitchen island was very important compared with 8 percent of women. In an unexpected finding, 38 percent of single men said a walk-in closet was very imported vs. 29 percent of women. Updated basements were rated as very important by 16 percent of men and 13 percent of women. Among married couples, 42 percent wanted a walk-in closet in the master bedroom. New kitchen appliances were thought to be very important by 21 percent of couples. About 24 percent wanted a single level home, and 34 percent of couples wanted ceilings that were 9 feet high.
