Hello there young couple! Since you are here, reading this article, you are probably looking to buy a home in Dallas. That is amazing! You will be glad to hear that the real estate industry is booming in this city (as well as in the entire state of Texas) more than ever, and that you will be able to quickly and easily find a home that suits your budget and all of your needs. But, you don’t want just any old home, right? You want something up-to-date, something that has all those popular home amenities among young people in Dallas, right? That is right! And, that is why we are here as well. Namely, today, we will share with you some things that you simply must have in your new home as a young couple.
Gone are the days of washing and drying machines in the middle of the kitchen or bathroom. And, gone are the days of DIY laundry rooms under the stairs or in some dusty corners of the home. Young couples, just like yourself, need a nice, separated, and a functional room dedicated only to laundry. That will be a room that has enough space for both washing and drying machine, for washing supplies, and for a lot of organizational bins for placing clean and dirty laundry. Everything more than that is a welcoming bonus.
This area of the house should help you keep all your clothes under control and enable you to have a clean, organized, and smelly-free house.
Of course, you can always do some stress-free renovating after moving in, that is, you can always build your own laundry room! But, to do that, you will not only have to focus on making your house renovation stress-free, but also on whether you will have enough space to renovate and build something like this.
Almost all houses in Dallas follow the same design principle – the living areas (kitchen, dining and living room) are on the first floor, and all the bedrooms and bathrooms are on the second. But, this trend has passed. People realized that having a bathroom only on th second floor is not really practical.
Just think about it – every time you have to use it, you have to run up the stairs. Moreover, a bathroom on the second floor is tricky when aging in place as it will be difficult to use it when you start having walking problems. And, let us not forget about those guests who have to go upstairs alone and walk through your bedrooms just to use the bathroom for 5 minutes.
Because of all the reasons mentioned above, having a fully-functional main-level bathroom is one of the most popular home amenities among young people in Dallas. So, if you find a home with this feature, grab it! Buy that home, call the moving experts from Evolution Moving Company DFW, and move in. You will thank us later.
Balconies and Patios
Everybody loves an outdoor space. So, young people in Dallas who are looking for an apartment, look for one that has a balcony. And, young people in Dallas who are looking for a house, look for one that has a patio! These outdoor amenities are, without a doubt, some of the most popular home amenities among young people in Dallas, and, they are amenities that will make any home more valuable!
Balconies and patios are our little connection to the ‘outside’ world. We use these areas to drink our first, morning coffee, to entertain our friends and family members, to make those daunting tasks of studying and working from home a bit less daunting, etc.
Bonus tip for sellers: If you sell a home with a balcony or a patio, be sure to stage them. Clean and declutter them, and then puts some nice-looking outdoor furniture and a lot of decorations (lights, candles, plants, throws, pillows, etc.), and you will make any buyer fall in love with your home. And, of course, you will make your home sell fast and for the best possible price.
Young people in Dallas are people who want to be a click away from anything they put their minds on. They want their gates to open on a button, they want to clap for their lights to turn on, they want to connect their phone to all appliances in the house, etc. But, you already know that, you are young. What you don’t know is that not a lot of homes in Dallas have these smart features.
So, you have two options – to ask the seller to install them and offer a bigger price, or to buy the home as-is, and make your adjustments. If you are not handy, that is, if you have never done this before, it might be better to leave it to the seller.
However, if you want your new Dallas home to be just the way you like it, and if you want all the smart features to be of your choosing, don’t hesitate to do it yourself. However, when we say ‘yourself’, we mean hire the experts to install everything yourself.
And, speaking of experts, don’t forget to find ones to help you move in too. Professional movers can help you with everything moving-related. But, if you don’t know what moving service you need exactly, don’t worry, ask them. Trained and experienced experts will help you find the best solution for your upcoming move.
And, ‘Green’ Features
Besides smart features, all young people in Dallas seem to be looking for ‘green’ features as well. These are the things such as energy-saving appliances, insulated walls and floors, energy-efficient doors and windows, solar panels, outdoor boilers, composts, and interiors made of natural materials such as wood, stone, etc. Of course, homes with these features will be more expensive, but hey, they save money (and the planet) in the long run!
Moreover, it is much better to look for homes that already have most of these ‘green’ features, as installing each and every one of them after moving in will be too time and energy-consuming. You will have to find a different pro for every feature you plan to install!
As you have seen, there are many different and popular home amenities among young people in Dallas. The ones we mentioned are the most popular, but they are not the only ones. So, do your research too. Who knows – maybe you find some amenity you didn’t know you needed.
