This isn’t just a room – it’s a specialty room.
The National Association of Home Builders surveyed homebuyers to research which “specialty room” ranked highest on their list.
But, what is a specialty room?
A specialty room is any room that isn’t a kitchen, a bedroom, or a bathroom. The survey separated the answers by generations and found some interesting data.
The specialty room that both Millennials and Gen Xers found desirable – an exercise room. However, when it came to an exercise room being an essential part of the home purchase, only 12% of Gen Xers agreed, compared to 22% of Millennials.
Game rooms and wine cellars were also desirable for Millennials, whereas Boomers barely made a percentage in these areas.
The top specialty room that Millennials felt was necessary to have in a home purchase was the laundry room. 50% of Millennials believed a laundry room was nonnegotiable when it came to searching for homes.
