Professional Builder Magazine did an extensive survey in the United States to find out what were the popular amenities for each generation of home buyers. It can be considered cutting edge information to use when planning your home remodeling, as to what elements would make your home up to date with current trends and demands. It may give you ideas of what priorities you may have in the future that you could incorporate now so your house will serve you well into the future.

Millennials (younger than 32)
Generation X (32-49 yrs, old)
