    For most people, a lot has changed in 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic — many of us are redefining careers and work locations; changing relationships and locales; upgrading personal wellness habits and so much more.

    At Sterling Ranch, we understand the many facets of homeownership and we’ve noticed a priority shift in what future residents want when purchasing new homes. We are fortunate (and grateful!) to support them as they navigate their home-buying journeys.

    Here’s a list of current trends in homeownership. Go ahead and take a gander. Then, check out how Sterling Ranch is supporting the needs of our home buyers.

    Five home-buying trends of 2020

    1. Location, location, location

    Location has always been the highest factor in choosing a new home. With social distancing measures in place, many people are looking for new locations — locations away from crowded cities and in close proximity to nature. Suburbs that offer a variety of city-like amenities and natural spaces are becoming increasingly appealing to those residing in urban areas.

    2. Brand-new homes

    More and more people are looking for brand-new homes. Why? New construction offers intuitive open-concept floorplans, increased energy efficiency, clean ventilation systems and low-maintenance living. All in all, with health and eco-friendliness top of mind, a newly built home is a great choice for a modern buyer.

    3. Spacious floorplans with ample storage

    These days, we’re spending more time at home. Many families have visitors staying for long periods of time, helping take care of kiddos or quarantining after travel. People are also cooking and baking more and growing their own vegetables. These activities require outdoor spaces, extra storage, and counter space, plus versatile bonus rooms to be used as home offices, extra bedrooms, fitness studios and more.

    4. Fast Internet speeds and reliable technology

    For safety reasons and for greater flexibility, more folks are working and learning from home on a permanent (or semi-permanent) basis. In addition to needing home office spaces and places for school work, remote workers and students heavily rely on fast Internet speeds and technology that seamlessly syncs all their devices, ensuring they never miss a Zoom meeting or a call due to dragging download speeds or online calendar mishaps.

    5. Outdoor spaces to enjoy life!

    People are drawn to nature these days. According to real estate agents, many people are craving a piece of the great outdoors right from their homes. Whether it is a front porch, a backyard haven, or close proximity to parks . . . access to nature is trending for many homeowners.
