What's more important to buyers than yards, decks and patios?
Buyers selected outdoor space as an important feature in a home. About half of all buyers said that decks, patios and yard were required or desired. But guess what other home feature is far more important to buyers? Air conditioning! 

That's right, according to a massive annual consumer study from the Zillow Group, most buyers – 62 percent – want air conditioning in their homes. The good news is that 65 percent of all homes in the U.S. have central air conditioning while another 27 percent have individual air conditioning units.

With those numbers, it's no surprise that keeping cool is more important to home shoppers than decks, patios and yards!
What are buyers looking for in a neighborhood?
In real estate, location is paramount. And for many buyers, proximity to work and public transportation are key factors in the selection of a neighborhood. According to a recent study of consumer housing trends, nearly half of all buyers want to be close to public transportation (45 percent), and nearly 7 in 10 want to be close to work.

How often do people sell a home?
Did you know that homeowners are now living in their homes 50 percent longer than they did in 2007? The National Association of Realtors says the average U.S. homeowner sells a home once every nine years. Previously, it was more frequently: once every six years. 
 
This is one of the reasons most sellers today use a real estate agent: 88% of buyers purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker—a share that has steadily increased from 69% since 2001.
