Most respondents in a survey of Better Homes and Gardens magazine readers said they most value ample storage space (74 percent) and closet space (74 percent) as very important in house hunting, while just 22 percent said they rate "eco-friendly" features as very important.

About 67 percent of respondents said an updated kitchen was very important, while 65 percent said a master bathroom was very important. Ranking far lower, at 27 percent, was "large square footage."
