What High End Luxury Home Buyers Should Look For in Their Upper End Home

Upper end home sales are on-fire!  Naturally, what constitutes a "luxury" home is personal to a home buyer (and seller) and price does not prove its qualifications.


Here are a few qualities I urge high-end property buyers to focus on:

Ceiling Height - The higher the better.

Architectural Uniqueness - At least look for "good bones"...a solid foundation, unusual details, high-grade materials, and an artistic component.

Practical Layout

Windows - They're a primary source of heating and cooling loss.  They should be double-paned and heavily insulated to protect against weather and noise.

Storage - Seriously, how can we live without lots of closets and copious additional storage in the basement?

Work-Out Room and/or Gym

Main Floor or Second Floor Laundry (or both)

Location
 
Views - Do you really want to watch your neighbors barbeque every night?

Light - You know the difference in how you feel when you walk into a bright, light-filled home as opposed to a dark, gloomy house.  Enough said.

Consider It Done - High-end renovations that are done well take time and time equals effort and money.  Some buyers really should avoid time-consuming, aggravating fixer-uppers.
