Millennials now make up the largest group of homebuyers. Here’s the thing you need to know if you’re considering selling your Marco Island home. Millennials don’t want the same thing that older generations wanted. They also shop differently from homebuyers in older generations. So, here’s what we’ve come to realize about the millennial homebuyer market.
ISO an Instagrammable Home
Millennials aren’t as impressed with traditional features. They are looking for rich accents that add beauty to their home. They’re often naturals of design, so they want a home that reflects this hunger for aesthetics. Think swapping out a standard kitchen counter top for one made of casted concrete or a rich quartz will likely impress this market. Millennials often enjoy high-end finishes. Around the home, stone detailing or cut timber is a unique addition depending on the home’s style. Choose hardwood or vinyl plank flooring. As a general rule, they prefer light-colored paints with black detailing. In the kitchen, choose stainless steel appliances if you’re replacing appliances to appeal to homebuyers.
Millennials are going to conduct almost all of their home search online. They are less likely to drive around and look for signs or check printed media. They want lots of high definition photos or virtual tours. They do not want to waste their time checking out a home just to see if they’ll like it. We need to grab their attention with the online listing photos. As we move into the future, we even expect millennials will begin requesting virtual reality tours. Sincerely, almost 75 percent of millennials surveyed recently are impressed by VR technology.
