According to a recently released survey by Better Homes and Gardens, 35 percent of women 35 and younger believe that a home is a reflection of their personalities, and 63 percent felt customizing a home to their own personal tastes was a top priority. Further, a segment of the survey revealed that under-35 females believe that what is inside the home counts, and only one-third of respondents believed that exterior makeovers were important, citing cost as the largest barrier to exterior improvement.

For Millennial female homeowners, upgrades are about experience—a personalized experience that connects family, work and home, allowing a united flow throughout all aspects of life.

Sage Realty LLC notes that focusing design on productivity and technology are two ways in which women are choosing to express themselves. Many advocate for and use smart technology that optimizes a home’s functionality. Products that allow people to control appliances, energy use and personal habit-tracking are among the most popular devices. Millennial female homeowners prefer systems that are easily integrated into the overall design of the home.

Another focus: spaces that enhance communication and productivity. Equipping homes with offices, work spaces and family communication centers are considered top projects and worth the investment.

Outdoor living spaces were considered to be the most essential in regards to exterior work. Landscaping, lighting and fire pits were the most commonly desired features, while more traditional upgrades like doors, painting and roofs did not receive as heavy emphasis.

Lastly, a lesser but still significant feature of importance in the home was storage space. Millennials are adding storage space in some form to customize and organize the home to their needs and preferences.

Featured Testimonial

I moved to PA from Washington State and learned that realty is local. There were things that I thought I knew about buying a house previously but boy was I wrong. Linda was very patient with me but also did not hold back when she saw potential problems, and always made sure I had all the information I needed before making a decision and didn’t belittle concerns to just get a sale. Above all else, and this was the most important thing to me, Linda has a high ethical standard, is very transparent in her approach and is someone I trusted making one of the biggest decisions of my life. – A.
