These are the features people are willing to pay more for
There are few places right now that are as hot as South Florida when it comes to the real estate market. People from all over are clamoring to live here, and it is becoming tough for developers to keep up with the demand. This is why condos and other residential buildings are being constructed at a record clip.
And sure, it can be easy to attract folks to many properties in South Florida because of the area’s appeal – but what if you don’t want just anybody? What if you are looking for a discerning buyer, someone who is probably in a higher tax bracket? How do you get them interested in your residences with all of the options out there? You have to know what they’re looking for.
Nowadays it’s not good enough to have an amazing home in a luxury building. Residents want to the option to live the luxury lifestyle without ever leaving the building, and this is why private clubs are being included within many high-end developments. Some condominiums in Miami are now even equipped with oceanfront cabanas.
While gyms may be standard in many condos and apartment buildings, luxury buyers want more than just a couple of old exercise bikes. As a result, entire fitness centers that rival paid, off-site options are becoming the norm. And keeping with the theme of an all-inclusive building, other features, such as spas and playrooms for the kids, are also trending big.
Even people living in sky-high developments want to experience some green without having to go anywhere. To accommodate them, many structures are now creating their own gardens. Not only does it add an interesting element to a building, a garden can also enhance and revitalize the atmosphere of a lobby or common area.
Personalized interior design
Cookie-cutter residences don’t cut it anymore. Buyers now want unique homes that are designed for their individual preferences, and they are paying very close attention to the details. Luxury shoppers are looking for things like the option to add marble or timber floors and exposed stone. They also expect excellent craftsmanship and top-of-the-line materials.
High-income buyers in South Florida who are willing to shell out big bucks for a home want it to be equipped with the latest smart technology to make their lives easier and to add an extra level of functionality. The features they are after include motorized shades, LED lighting, automatic climate adjustment, an integrated home security system, and other controls they’ll have access to through a smartphone or other device.
If you are planning on building a luxury residential structure, make sure to keep the above features in mind to attract the discerning buyers.
