If you follow pop culture news, you’d think that all millennials are concerned about is SnapChat and avocado toast. But according to a recent report, there’s something much more important on millennials’ minds these days—and that’s buying a home.
According to the 2018 Home Buyer Report from NerdWallet, a whopping 82% of millennials say buying a home is a priority, significantly higher than older generations (which came in at 75% for Gen Xers and only 69% for Baby Boomers). And the reason? 64% say they want to buy a home because it’s a good investment—an even better investment than padding their retirement accounts. 56% of millennials surveyed agree with the statement “I would rather have a home I own appreciate in value than have more money in retirement savings”.
If you’re a millennial who’s looking to purchase a home, you’re not alone. And with still-competitive interest rates and new inventory set to flood the market later this year (which will drive down prices), there’s never been a better time to start your home search.
Need a guide? A road map?
Most people think finding the home of their dreams just sort of happens…
Like they’ll “know it when they see it,” or it’ll be love at first site. Sometimes that happens. But a lot of times, homebuyers miss out on great homes because they make some really common mistakes.
Finding and actually getting the best house for your wants and needs (let alone at the best possible price!) isn’t as simple as just being in the market, finding it, putting it in a shopping cart, and heading to the checkout.
There’s quite a bit to the process.
My buyer’s guide will demystify the process and give you a no-fluff, in-between-the-lines look at things most buyers either simply ignore, or don’t realize. (Even some agents don’t know some of the things I cover in this booklet.)
Get my professional insight into the current local market conditions. Don’t worry if you’re super busy; this isn’t the real estate version of “War And Peace.” It’ll be a quick, insightful (and hopefully kind of fun) read for you!
Within the next couple hours, you’ll literally know more about the buying process than most buyers out there (and even some real estate agents) if you go ahead and ask for your copy now.
So tell me where to send it, and you’ll be done reading it in no time. Although… you’ll probably find yourself going back and re-reading it throughout the process of buying your home! (Especially if you don’t end up working with me! But if you do, I know this stuff inside and out. Just sayin’…) Get the guide here.
Don’t hesitate to contact me regarding any questions you have about buying, getting ready to buy, whether it makes the most sense for YOU to rent or buy or any other questions regarding real estate. I want to be your agent…for life!
