High End Homes
Definition of Luxury
“Luxury” isn’t strictly about how much cash you blow on the purchase. It’s much more subjective, and a moving target based on what a particular area’s high-end buyers have come to expect. While it’s hard to pin down an exact definition that encapsulates this air of affluence, luxury homes do tend to have certain features in common. So whether you’re looking to buy a posh place or wondering if you can describe your current digs in such opulent terms, here are some general qualities you can expect to find in a luxury home.
Top 3 Characteristics That Make a Home Luxury
1. A high price for the area
Of course, a “luxury” price depends on where you live. A million-dollar house in Studio City, CA, may not qualify, but a similarly priced home in Hemet, a mere two hours away, would be one of the priciest and most luxurious properties in town.
In general the lowest price you can expect to pay for a luxury home starts anywhere from $500,000 to $3 million, and goes up from there. Way up.
2. Prime location
No matter the city, state, or country, luxury homes are the ones with the most coveted locations, whether they’re atop a mountain, right on the beach, or overlooking the sparkling lights of the city far below. But these areas are constantly expanding and evolving: A new strip of trendy bars and restaurants can turn an otherwise average area into a hot spot that attracts high-end buyers.
3. Premier quality
The construction materials, finishes, appliances, and design all must be a cut above what’s considered standard. Marble, hardwood, Venetian plaster, crystal, and Miele appliances have all become common components of luxury homes.
Luxury is About Experience
Today’s new wealthy consumers are more informed, more globally exposed, and more sophisticated than previous generations. Baby boomers in particular are now “less materialistic and more experiential,” noted Cognizent in a luxury retail trend study.
And HNWIs are being led into the luxury experience by prestige brands such as Christie’s. “The worlds of high-value art, education, travel, luxury goods, and architecture are colliding,” observes Dirk Boll, European Managing Director of Christie’s. “Our focus remains on serving our clients whenever and however they choose to connect with art. Increasingly they are connecting with art in luxury sectors such as architecture and travel, where the enjoyment extends beyond ownership and into experience.”
This shift toward experiential luxury is similarly reflected in the amenity and lifestyle preferences of high-net-worth (HNW) home buyers.
