8 Hot Home Trends For 2020 And Beyond

Image result for hot home trends 2020

With a new decade upon us, it’s an exciting time for home design trendsetters, including architects, developers, builders — and yes, you, the homeowner. Trends in the field reflect green and tech innovations, healthier lifestyles and a focus on shared space. Let’s take a look at eight of the most important directions being taken.

  1. Going casual.Homes today reflect a more relaxed lifestyle, with an emphasis on comfort. Formal dining and living rooms are being replaced by open floor plans, a greater inclusion of the outdoors and no-frills home offices.
  2. Smarter and better connected.Evolving smart technologies have been incorporated throughout the home. Automated systems, which range from home security to lighting to climate control, are everywhere. Command centers provide a place for wireless charging stations, home deliveries and easy device access for coordinating family schedules.
  3. Green sustainability is in fashion.In response to a changing climate and increasing costs, energy efficiency is a must. Homeowners are choosing Energy Star appliances and windows. Smart thermostats and LED lighting save money and energy. New, efficient plumbing fixtures conserve water. Builders are using recycled and other high-tech materials to improve thermal insulation. Rooftop solar panels are more common. The green home marketplace is abuzz with constant improvements.
  4. The appeal of the open floor plan.Whether home buyers are looking to maximize the flow of light or space, or to create more familial unity, they’re looking to open floor plans. Most common is the integration of the kitchen with a dining or living room, but also with a patio or home office. These multipurpose spaces are becoming the norm.
  5. The heart of the home.The kitchen remains the center of household activity. We not only cook and eat in the kitchen, but its island has expanded into the home’s meeting place. Design-wise, buyers are looking for white-upon-white cabinetry and walls, stainless steel appliances and natural stone counter tops.
  6. Redefining the bathroom.In the easygoing 2020’s, the bathroom can be your refuge: a long shower or even longer soak transforms the room from a care space into a spa. Calming shades of white and gray are preferred. Homebuyers are going with the clean look of wall-mounted fixtures. More welcoming walk-in showers with multi-function faucets are a hot feature.
  7. At home in the great outdoors.Another exciting trend for the 2020s is a greater usage of the homeowner’s outdoor space. With more informal lifestyles, enjoying one’s yard, deck, patio or pool is now a priority. Designer outdoor furniture and exterior lighting, as well as mobile heaters and outdoor kitchens, are making the outdoors a year-round experience.
  8. Tomorrow’s home, today.Builders are recognizing home affordability issues and responding to home buyers’ changing priorities. This is resulting in smaller homes with fewer traditional luxuries, like three-car garages. More affordable prefab modular construction and townhomes are on the rise.

October Residential Highlights

October brought some cooling to real estate activity in the Portland metro area, but pending sales were still on the rise this was the strongest October for pending sales in the area since October 2005. Inventory in the Portland metro area decreased slightly in October to 1.8 months. Remember 6 months is considered a balanced market. Anything under 6 months is considered a sellers’ market and above 6 months is considered a buyers’ market. We are in a STRONG sellers’ market right now. We have actually been in a sellers’ market for well over 3 years.

Total market time in holding steady at 46 days (Time it takes to get an accepted offer on your home).

Sale Prices and the Future of Real Estate

Prices continue to rise. The median sale price rose a whopping 7.0% for all areas (All neighborhoods are different-for your call, email or text me).

The interest rates are still very low making it affordable to purchase even though the prices are rising. The economic forecasts I have heard say we are in in for another year of increased prices!

This is very good news people! If you are waiting to make a more or wished you would of done it before the crash NOW is the time! Call, email, or text me for information on selling or buying residential property. You’ll be glad you did!
