the YOUNG and WEALTHY ………..

The top of their wish list are a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen, home gym, home theater, wine cellar and 4+ garages.  More younger buyers value green or LEED-certified residential properties.  Wealthy consumers of all ages want a home with an open floor plan that is fully automated and wired for technology.  Staff quarters, tennis court and separate catering kitchens are less important.  Most are going to stay put for the next 12 months.
