Home buyers eye location, efficiency, amenities

As the current housing market slows down to "real time," buyers are seeking answers to lots of questions about how to find the right home. And while the old real estate saying about the three most important attributes being "location, location and location" still has some truth to it, today's consumers are savvier and more discerning. Location is only part of the equation: It's also about conveniences and amenities. And for conveniences and amenities, it's hard to beat a new home. Today, new homes are safer, more efficient, and packed with more popular amenities than ever.
