What a Realtor Should Know About Millennials?

  • What’s on their ”wish list”?

Millennials are one overthinking breed. Before making such a huge decision they would consider going through every detail. They are surprisingly economical and clever when it comes to swapping their first home. According to researches, they are more likely to make sacrifices and save some dollars for the future. As a result, they end up buying a small compact, old, second-hand homes as compared to Generation X or Baby Boomers. They strive to opt for the ’affordable’ option.

  • Necessity over Luxury

Millennials are one smarty pants unlike Gen Z or Baby Boomers who yearn for luxury and look at this investment to enhance their status symbol. Millennials are very straight with their idea, they see homeownership with more fluidity and flexibility. For them, it is more of a necessity as they know the importance of roof over their heads. Also, they only expect to live in a home for 10 years before moving, so if any job opportunities come in their way which demands reallocation and shifting they are probably gonna take it.

  • ”Let me check online first”

This one is quite obvious and expected. Cross-checking everything online first is kind of a reflex nowadays. Millennials have been known as the first generation really introduced to the high-tech world before adulthood. That’s why they are pro at it.

According to the NAR, 94% of Millennial home buyers start by looking at online listings.

But that doesn’t mean they won’t be contacting an agent before making the ultimate decision - though first, they would like to do their own little study. So, Agents working with Millennial buyers can anticipate their clients to know what they want and arrive with basic knowledge.

  • They need a 'Helping Hand'

Most of the Millennials deciding to invest in Real Estate are majorly newbies to this genre. Irrespective of their own research they would need more help understanding the process thoroughly from someone experienced. In 2011-2012, 65 percent of millennials buying homes had rented a place before, though a whopping 22 percent came directly from living with parents, relatives, or friends. This is one big step they are about to make in order to live the actual independent life and in no form they want to screw it up. Therefore, when dealing with millennials, it is crucial that real estate agents not only act as salespersons but also educators, assisting to guide their customers through the entire home-buying process so ultimately they are content and proud of their decision.

  • They are the largest group of buyers

As stated earlier Millennials consist of the majority of Real Estate buyers so they are one influential force that the Realtors need to handle with care. According to NAR’s analysis, Millennials made up the largest group of recent buyers at 32%. So basically more than half of the population which comes between the age group of 18-34 years which we so call it Millennials have expressed a desire to buy their own house in their next five-year plan.

A modern report by Harvard foresaw that the number of Millennial households is expected to increase by 2.7 million in the next 10 years which will result in a massive boost for the demand of new housing and fill up every Realtor’s pockets.

So, that’s a wrap. This article basically sums up every important information one Realtor needs to keep in mind while dealing with a Millennial. After all, this generation is inclined to buy and sell more real estate in the future, and you’ll want to be the first one they call.
