Thirty-eight percent also say the square footage of the property is a key attribute, and 36 percent say having an expansive master suite is important.“The luxury home buyer is an important contingent of today’s real estate market, as luxury homes tend to drive trends throughout the entire balance of the marketplace,” says Barbara O’Connor, chief marketing officer at Move Inc., which operates realtor.com®. “We are seeing large portions of buyers throughout the country — from 23 percent in the Northeast region and 23 percent in the South Atlantic — eyeing luxury homes. This means sellers, builders, and certainly REALTORS® should all be paying particular attention to desired luxury amenities, such as chef-quality kitchens and master suite features, to close deals for them.”Forty percent of luxury buyers say the biggest challenge in searching for a high-end luxury home is to find a property that meets their family’s needs; 20 percent say it’s limited number of properties offered.What’s prompted their search for a luxury home? The realtor.com® survey found that 19 percent of luxury home shoppers say a recent success in their career has prompted their home search, while 17 percent say they entered the market because they’re newly retired. Other popular motivations for a luxury home: 14 percent say they are entering the luxury market as an investment, and 12 percent say they have entered the market to purchase their first home.

"She's the best!
Monica has a great personality, a vast knowledge in Real Estate and won't be pushy. Very easy to deal with.
Monica was very professional, informative, polite and dedicated with the sell of our home. She did a great job marketing and going above and beyond to get the home sold. We were so pleased with Monica, we used her to purchase our second home. Also, we have a rental home in gilbert that we are thinking about selling, and Monica will be the first person i call!!
Monica Scott did an amazing job facilitating my needs and finding just the right property. I am looking to purchase a condominium in a historic district and Monica found a complex that I love. No units are currently available, so Monica found an apartment across the street from the condo for me to rent until one comes on the market. I found my realtor, highly recommend!
Monica was always there to show me properties and I was renting back from buyers on my previous house. So I was in a time crunch to find a new place so I could make one move and not get into a lease. She was very helpful and we made multiple offers on properties, but we finally closed by the time I had to move out and get into my new property. She is very good at her job and loves her work and always has something good to say about every choice you make."
