A Move-In Ready Home Moves Many Buyers – Here’s Why

According to Zillow’s 2024 Housing report, a move-in ready home – needing no repairs or updates – was selected by 43% of respondents as the deciding factor in their purchase decision. 

“A significant share of new construction buyers want a home they can move into immediately.  About two in five (43%) say the prospect of a turn-key home that didn’t need repairs or updates was their number one reason for buying a newly built home.  Three in four (74%) cited it among their top three reasons.  Customization ran a distant second, with roughly one in five new construction buyers citing it as the main reason for their purchase, and 57% citing it as one of their top three reasons.” (source Zillow)
