San Antonio Moving Specialists Say Goodbye To Home Features

The real estate market is certainly not what it used to be. These days, the market is flooded with foreclosures, short sales and underwater homeowners who are caught in the middle. Times are also hard on the people who build our homes too, the homebuilding industry has definitely taken a hit, building less homes because with all the bargain-priced inventory, there's less of a need for newer houses. This year, there will be around 500,000 new single-family homes built, but they local San Antonio movers learned they will be more practical and value-conscious so there are many features that won't be popular anymore.

For example, the San Antonio moving specialists learned that outdoor kitchen won't be featured, neither will outdoor fireplaces. Outdoor fireplaces are actually the second least-likely feature to be included in new homes in 2012 according to the National Association of Home Builders. The All My Sons of San Antonio movers found out sunrooms are also disappearing, because builder are more focused on features that add immediate value, such as walk-in closets, linen closets and laundry rooms. Two story family rooms are next on the list, builders only gave it a 2.2 score on a 1 to 5 scale. The family room is definitely still the heart of the house where everyone gathers and shares great conversation, but just not on two levels. The local San Antonio movers learned that the media room is also not high on the list for homebuilders.

Some developments are also faced with typically attracting buyers with a surplus of amenities such as pools and game rooms, even walking/jogging trails but even those aren't as popular for the next batch of newly-build homes. The fancy master bathrooms is next on the list of features that are disappearing, so are formal living rooms. These days there's more of an open space that accommodates the living room, family room and kitchen area.
