If you’re selling your Marco Island home, you can appeal to both markets, but appealing to Gen Xers is often much easier. Generation X might now be the largest generation, but they are still the largest generation with kids in the home. And they’re the generation bringing in the most earnings. They are in their peak earning years. Especially if your home is not a starter home, marketing to Generation X homebuyers is often a breeze.
Generation X homebuyers are back in the homebuying business after being dealt a bad hand when they were in their earlier homebuying years. In 2007, the housing market collapsed and many saw foreclosures. Those that didn’t still saw their credits decline or their income shrink. Now, they’re back in the game though and they are looking for homes. Often this generation is even buying homes to share with their Baby Boomer parents or their Millennial children. So, they do generally require homes that are larger than the homes Millennials are seeking. Is your home an ample size to suit the needs of this generation?
Millennials are often seeking homes that are absolutely ready to go. They’re looking for hard-surface flooring and green tech. While Gen X homebuyers are satisfied with these luxuries too, they will also be happy to make these improvements down the line when they’re ready. Gen Xers are used to waiting and used to settling on less than perfect. This might be the lowest-maintenance generation buying homes today. All they really need is a home with good livability and good functionality.
So, while it’s incredibly advantageous to market to Millennials, it’s often easier to market to Generation X homebuyers.
