When you’re selling a home in Naples, it’s important that your home appeals to as many prospective buyers as possible – but without a crystal ball, how are you supposed to know what luxury buyers are looking for? This guide highlights the top five luxury amenities buyers want right now and are likely to continue looking for into 2022.
The Top 5 Amenities Luxury Buyers Want for 2022
Your Naples REALTOR® will walk through your home with you to point out areas that could use a little TLC before you sell. The purpose of a walk-through with your agent is to discover how you can make your home more marketable to prospective buyers – and some of the things your REALTOR may bring up include:
- Ultra-luxe entertainment spaces
- Fully equipped outdoor kitchens
- Smart home capabilities
- Spa-style bathrooms
- Touchless lights and faucets
Here’s a closer look at each.
Luxury Amenity #1: Ultra-Luxe Entertainment Spaces
Ultra-luxe entertainment spaces featuring plenty of room to sprawl out and watch movies or play game consoles are definitely on the upswing. Though all-purpose entertainment rooms are in, buyers also love theater rooms and game rooms with distinct purposes – particularly if they have built-in wet bars and other features, such as high-efficiency lighting systems and other eco-friendly systems.

Luxury Amenity #2: Fully Equipped Outdoor Kitchens
Entertaining is a lot easier with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. Though condo and high-rise living doesn’t allow for an outdoor kitchen, they’re incredibly popular in single-family homes. Buyers love to see covered spaces that have all the functionality of an indoor kitchen, complete with appliances and a grill, as well as storage space for pots and pans. Covered dining space is also a must, as it provides a great place for gathering in the shade on balmy Florida days.
Luxury Amenity #3: Smart Home Capabilities
It’s rare to find a newer home without smart home capabilities – and that’s because buyers love these types of features. If you can integrate smart tech into your home, you’ll likely sell it faster (and for a higher profit). Look for ways to integrate features like smart outlets, lighting and thermostats, as well as security and safety features.
Luxury Amenity #4: Spa-Style Bathrooms
Luxury buyers want to start each day in comfort, and that’s where spa-style bathrooms come in. Amenities like whirlpool tubs and saunas, full-body jet showers, spacious dual sinks and vanities, and ample storage space are things buyers are looking for in upscale homes.

Luxury Amenity #5: Touchless Lights and Faucets
Touchless switches and dimmers are increasingly popular (as are lighting systems you can control with an app on your phone), and so are touchless faucets. These simple upgrades can make a tremendous difference to buyers, especially right now – when they’re not as popular as they will be by the end of 2022. These features have two sets of benefits: ease of use and lower contamination risk. That means buyers are actively beginning to look for them in homes. Fortunately, both are relatively low-cost improvements that you may even be able to DIY in an afternoon.
