Today’s Millennial Buyers Expectations
Today’s buyer is largely made up of Millennial’s. What does that mean for you, the seller? Well, if you want to make the most you can when you decide to sell your home that there are some things you are definitely going to want to do.
First, choose Domii. Domii is an app that simplifies the home buying and selling process and encourages instant appointments. In study after study Millennials have demonstrated that they won’t wait. If they can’t have it right away then they don’t want it from that seller and they will move on. Don’t let the perfect buyer move on because you aren’t using a Domii real-estate professional.
Second, Millennials are online savvy and do their research. That means that your digital listing matters, and you need a real-estate professional who understand how important great photos help sell houses. Finding a real-estate professional who understands this fact will give you a leg-up in today’s competitive market.
Third, Millennials are concerned about a lot of different things but two things that matter – How close the home is to the schools and how their commuting costs will be impacted. While you can’t control those things – make sure that your real-estate professional understands that perks matter. Maybe you are right down the street from the best coffee shop in town, or the grocery store is easy to get to. Those perks matter to today’s Millennial buyer.
Fourth, those same perks matter inside your home. Finished laundry room? Perk! Hardwood Floors? Perk! Walk-in Pantry? Perk! Garage Storage? Perk! Find the perks that your home offers and make sure that your real-estate professional knows how to capitalize that in your digital listing. Great photos can reinforce these items and highlight them to today’s visual buyers.
Fifth, expect today’s buyers to write letters. This is not a new phenomenon, but it has increased ten-fold in today’s competitive real-estate market. Those letters are meant to help introduce you to them. Expect them to tug at your heartstrings and give lots of reasons why they are the best buyer for your home. Some sellers use them to influence their selection and others don’t even read them. It’s up to you!
Lastly, your real-estate professional will help offer suggestions and offer advice on how to access today’s resourceful and savvy buyer. Great photos can help sell a property, buyers expect your digital listing really reflect what your home looks like, and listing perks can make a huge impact on buyers.
