Men vs. Women: America’s More Loveable Property Features

It’s no secret, men and women are wired differently.


But recent research shows that when it comes to features that motivate them to buy, the connection between the sexes isn’t a battle.

America’s most lovable features

While there’s a small difference in what they love the most, our recent survey showed both men and women agree on which top features make them fall in love with a home.

When we asked first-time home buyers “which home amenity would make you, personally, fall in love with a home?,” here were the top answers:


Amenities All Respondents Men Women
Master Bathroom 70% 64% 75%
Walk-in Closet 63% 55% 72%
Gourmet Kitchen 56% 51% 62%
Outdoor Deck 55% 51% 58%
Wood Floors 50% 46% 53%
Pre-wired for entertainment system (e.g., home theater, surround sound) 35% 42% 28%
Pool 27% 27% 26%
Hot Tub 24% 26% 22%
Other 15% 15% 15%


The big feature conflict

While men and women agree that the master bath, walk-in closet and gourmet kitchen are top priorities when it comes to finding their dream home,  not all features are created equal.  Among the top features, women and men each showed they had a little more love for a few key features at the top of the list:
What women love (more than men):

  • Master Baths
  • Walk in Closets
  • Gourmet Kitchens

Favorites men love (more than women):

  • Pre-Wiring for Entertainment System
  • Pool
  • Hot tub
