Luxury Must-Have Amenities for Home-Buyers in 2023

Real Estate Agents Reveal The Must-Have Amenities For Home-Buyers In 2023.

Let’s see which ones topped the luxury home amenities list:

Outdoor Kitchen

They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, but that heart may be moving outside, according to a recent survey of top real estate agents worldwide.

A recent Luxury Agent Poll conducted by Forbes Global Properties revealed that the single-most sought-after home amenity in 2023 is an outdoor kitchen.

While tastes of high-net-worth buyers continuously evolve, outdoor space, proximity to lifestyle amenities and private pools remain among the most-requested features. From brick pizza ovens to barbecue pits to full-on al fresco chef’s kitchens, the outdoor kitchen is a trend that has only grown in the past few years. 

Indoor/Outdoor Pools

A regular on top luxury amenities lists, pools have long been a symbol of status and wealth. In warm-weather climates, you’d be hard-pressed to find a luxury new-construction home that doesn’t include a pool.

Pool designs have evolved to include multitiers, hidden grottos and sun shelves. Other popular variations on the traditional pool include saltwater, plunge and jetstream pools for in-place lap swimming.

The highest-caliber homes can even have two pools on the property—one indoor and one outdoor.

Spa Amenities

Another long-standing amenity, the spa highlights not only the extravagance of a home but of a lifestyle. As wellness and self-care continue to become prioritized so, too, have home spas. Often found in the primary bathroom, spa amenities can include soaking tubs, steam showers or movable walls for al fresco bathing.

Whether it’s a property with a massage room or one with a swim spa, a listing featuring spa amenities is sure to catch the eye of affluent homebuyers.

Fitness Centre

Continuing on the trend of wellness, the next popular luxury amenity on our list is the home fitness centre. Like outdoor kitchens, home gyms had something of a renaissance in the past few years and have grown increasingly common in new build projects.

In addition, new high-tech equipment is more readily available than ever, with many featuring virtual training to get a professional workout without leaving your home. At-home facilities can range from more traditional weightlifting rooms to modern Pilates studios to outdoor yoga spaces.

Selling Sunsets

Dubai’s luxury real estate market is all about selling the story (or the sunset). Bolstered by a flock of high net-worth buyers, high-end real estate prices have jumped 89% over the past year and the sale of ultraluxe properties priced at more than $10 million reached an unprecedented level.

Research shows that property listings that are well-written, and create a story that the client can buy into, sell faster than generic, poorly written listings.

Additionally, the last thing a seller wants is for their stunning property to be let down by their broker’s bland, cut and paste description. Or one that’s been read time and time again by ready buyers.

Using a real estate themed generative AI tool, like, solves this problem instantly. Listings are created through a series of simple prompts, to produce localised, engaging, seo-optimised text, which sells the lifestyle, through elevated AI generated language.
