So, what defines a luxury home in NJ?

Price Point: How Much Are You Willing to Spend?

It’s sort of an obvious statement that a luxury home is best defined by the price point. More expensive homes are defined by some people as luxurious, but the prices differ. Some realtors define luxury homes as homes over $1 million in value, whereas others pinpoint them in the hundreds of thousands.

When it comes to homeowners, there is no standard for what defines a luxury home. A luxury home can be defined by whatever number is a stretch for that particular person’s budget, or it can be defined by what’s inside the home itself.

Finishes and Amenities: What Will Be Inside?

For many builders, the finish and amenities inside the home are what makes it fall into the ‘luxury’ home category. Updated appliances like washers and dryers, dishwashers, shelving units, hot tubs and pool fixtures along with many other amenities can add to a home’s luxury status.

Finishes also have a large influence on whether or not a home will be defined as a luxury home. Materials like marble, glass and granite are all different price points when decorating and filling your home, and what you choose will add or detract from your home’s value.

Size and Location: How Big Will Your Build Your Home and Where?

The bigger the home, the more likely it will be considered a luxury home. While there is no exact square footage to support a defining characteristic, enlarging your home will generally raise its price point. However, take into consideration location and home type.

For example, a multiple bedroom penthouse in New York City may be considered a luxury home even though it pales in comparison in size to other larger homes built out in the suburbs. Location is a huge factor in defining whether or not a house is a luxury home, and in NJ, depending on where you live, you will find more luxury homes.
