What's Important to Millennials In Their First Home

Posted by John Sabia on Wednesday, October 14th, 2015 at 12:25pm.

When studying the strength of any real estate market, First-time home-buyers are always an important demographic to to consider. Over the years, younger buyers have typically accounted for approximately 40 percent of all home sales across the country.

However, since the housing melt down, fewer and fewer first-time buyers have been active in the real estate market. As a result, more and more studies have been conducted to understand the buying habits of younger buyers. The studies are designed to find out what is most important in a first house to buyers between the ages of 18 and 34?

SurveyMonkey released its recent findings that Millennial buyers are more concerned with neighborhoods for its schools, safety and affordability. Younger buyers also stated pragmatic reasons for their decision to purchase rather than continue to rent.

The top reason first-time buyers chose to purchase a house for sale or condominium for sale was for a feeling of accomplishment, balance and establishing roots. A safe investment and wealth management ranked next.
