Whether you're having a home built or buying a home, there are certain amenities that homeowners love. If you are planning to purchase a home, it's smart to go into your search with a list of must-haves. Even though the competition is tough for home buyers, you want to be sure that your new home will work for your lifestyle. 

Here's a list of homeowners' favorite home amenities. Which amenities are your favorite? 

High-End Finishes- Hardwood flooring and solid surface or quartz countertops can make a home feel much more luxurious than the less expensive finishes. Hardwood flooring is preferred by 87% of home buyers, according to Realtor Magazine. 

Energy Efficiency- Energy-efficient windows, appliances, HVAC, and insulation can all make a huge difference in a home's energy usage, decreasing both the homeowner's energy bills and carbon footprint. 

Ample Storage- Consider where you're going to store everything. Winter coats? Holiday decor? Linens? Tools? Make sure your potential new home has enough space for storage for both daily necessities and seasonal storage. 

Outdoor Living Area- One of the many benefits of living in Northern Nevada is the amount of sunshine we get (300+ days per year). If you love spending time outdoors, whether that's enjoying your garden or dining al fresco, make sure the outdoor living area will fit your lifestyle. 

Laundry Room- A whopping 92% of homebuyers say a laundry room is an essential house feature according to the National Association of Home Builders Eye on Housing list. It seems most homeowners would rather not have their washer and dryer set up in the garage. 

Extensive Exterior Lighting- Homeowners appreciate extra exterior lighting. Not only is lighting an important safety feature, but lighting can draw attention to focal points in your landscape and architecture.
