Quality workmanship, swimming pools and outdoor space are key factors for Australians building their own home.
Sydney families, couples and young professionals may keep these factors in mind when buying real estate in St George, if it could improve their chances of better resale value in the future.
These elements were highlighted in a Master Builders Queensland survey for the December quarter, published on February 19.
While property in St George is popular for its locality to the Sydney city centre as well as fantastic local parks, buyers should naturally consider what's inside the property, too.
Quality fittings and fixtures, outdoor living and liveable design "ranked in the top five most important drivers in selecting a builder," stated Master Builders Deputy Executive Director Paul Bidwell.
However, home buyers could also keep these factors in the back of their minds when attending open inspections.
Given that Australians are demanding these kinds of features in their new home buildings, it's plausible that property buyers could also be considering them.
Those considering renovating their property in Carlton could focus on quality kitchen fittings, an outdoor deck or an open-plan kitchen to attract future buyers.
It's possible that these features could prove to be tempting when a home is later put on the market, if the Master Builders survey is anything to go by.
