While we may think luxury real estate is simply the listing(s) of mansions with acreage, that isn’t always the case. With today’s market, often luxury homes are getting smaller. Small yards and lots are easier to maintain and upkeep which is a common need among homebuyers. With smaller lots available, this often means that luxury homes are becoming multi-level with different features and sometimes even different designs on each level. Whether you like your home to flow together as one cohesive piece or like each room to be a stand-alone jaw-dropper, the multi-level homes that are becoming our newest and greatest luxury listings are sure to please. The majority of homes in today’s luxury market(s) offer beautifully open concepts with an airy kitchen, living and dining room allowing for peak entertainment all year round.

The lifestyle that is lived in luxury homes requires more than simply good looks and beautiful finishes, luxury homes are meant to be suitable and comfortable for their owners. For example, a luxury home may be built with a massive walk-in closet with a seating and dressing area to help a young couple feel they have the space to get ready for a night out. Lighting as well as updated electrical, such as USB ports, are all a huge bonus in luxury real estate. While the most important person to please is the buyer, everyone wants a home that can not only wow their guests but can also start a conversation based on specific features that are etched into the home
