Residential Sales: Attracting Young Buyers

residential sales and young homebuyers

Young homebuyers often have a slightly different set of values when it comes to residential sales.

When it comes to residential sales, almost every real estate agent will tell you that young homebuyers can be come armed with a pretty long and specific wish list. With generally smaller budgets, it can be tough to find the perfect balance of money and amenities, but everyone once and a while, you’ll strike gold. When it comes to marketing residential sales to young homebuyers, the trick is to keep an eye on trends, and cross-reference them with available properties. This way, you’ll have the perfect property in mind when a young homebuyer comes calling.

Home Offices & Extra Space

Millennials are young and hungry. This means that plenty of young people seek fulfilling and moneymaking endeavors like writing and crafting. Often times, these jobs require a home workspace. Whether it’s selling crafts online or designing an app for consumers to download, young people need a space to work and enjoy their hobbies. When it comes to where a home office or extra space is located, young homebuyers aren’t picky, but an extra space that can be converted into a home office is a major selling point in today’s residential sales market.

Good Location

The old adage “location, location, location” still applies to a younger home-buying audience. When people are on the hunt for their first home, location is a major selling point.  Whether the goal is a family-friendly area for a future family to run around, or a hip locale close to a booming job market and easy transportation, this can make or break your sale.

Homes with Low Maintenance

While some people love the idea of fixing up a home to match their exact vision, many young buyers prefer turnkey properties with low maintenance flooring and appliance. Granite counter tops, hardwood floors, and stainless steel appliances are simple changes any homeowner can make in order to appeal to a younger audience when it comes time to sell.  Older homes may not initially be attractive to younger homebuyers, but if the appliances and inside of the house are up-to-date and modern, that can be a huge selling point.
