THE MILENNIAL HOME BUYER: WHAT ARE THEY LOOKING FOR? PET-FRIENDLY LAYOUTS, BEDROOMS THAT EASILY CONVERT TO WORKSPACES AND SMALLER, MORE EFFICIENT FLOORPLANS ARE JUST A FEW OF THE PREFERENCES OF GEN Y HOMEBUYERS

These layouts reflect the new priorities for Gen Y homebuyers. Gone are the flashy-but-extraneous formal living rooms and giant garages. A whole bunch of bedrooms? Nah, but there's definitely space to work from home. Pet owners will appreciate mudrooms and other spaces where they can store supplies. And importantly, square footages are modest, freeing up budget for upscale counters and other must-haves.

A workshop in the garage provides a handy spot for tinkering with a bike or perhaps even brewing beer. For buyers who work from home (even part of the time), the bright den that faces the backyard is a more appealing option than the typical home office looking out to the street. This space also steps out to the covered patio, where a two-sided fireplace creates an Instagram-worthy focal point. Inside, a wide island gives lots of room for casual meals in the kitchen. The master suite sits on the same side of the home as the secondary bedroom but is actually a bit removed, making it easy to maintain privacy when in-laws or guests are visiting. A loft upstairs adds more space. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
