Today's homebuyers will pay a premium for energy efficient appliances. They're not really interested in, however, in having an elevator in their new house.

These are findings reported in a new National Association of Home Builders study, "What Home Buyers Really Want," now available as an e-book.

The study identified some of the most-wanted features as Energy Star appliances and windows, as well as an Energy Star rating for the whole home.

The report found that nine out of 10 buyers would rather buy a home with energy-efficient features and permanently lower their utility bills than a home without those features but costing 2-3% less.

Some of the features that most homebuyers do not want:
* an elevator
* high density communities or golf courses
* a master bath with a shower stall but no bathtub
