Side-by-side kitchen sinks are sought-after features among prospective home buyers.

Home trends come and go. Today’s must-have items tend to become tomorrow’s outdated features in the blink of an eye. Modern buyers want a lot out of their homes, and sellers can do their best to meet those desires while getting the most money for their properties.

Homeowners who plan to stay in their current homes for years to come needn’t prioritize modern trends over personal preferences. However, homeowners looking to sell their homes can consider these favored features to increase their properties appeal to modern buyers.

Separate laundry room: A separate room dedicated to laundry was the most desired feature among prospective home buyers, according to one survey. Though it might not inspire the awe of an outdoor living room or floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a wooded backyard, a laundry room fills a direct and universal need. Perhaps that’s why 87 percent of buyers want a room dedicated to laundry in a home.
