Why Are More & More Millennials Choosing the Services of a Real Estate Agent when Looking for Homes for Sale? – Sage Realty LLC

First, there were Silents, followed by Baby Boomers, and then the infamous Generation X. Today, most young people, born between the 1980’s and 2000’s, are commonly referred to as “Generation Y” or “Millennials” and they are changing the way real estate is bought and sold.

Based on the 2015 National Association of Realtors® Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends study, Millennials (categorized as being 34 or younger) now make up 32% of all buyers, making them the largest group currently purchasing homes for sale. Neglecting the unique needs of this generation would be an incredible oversight.

How Do Millennials Search & Purchase Real Estate?

The same survey also found that 51% of Generation Y buyers found their home by performing a search online first. Interestingly enough, Millennials are more likely to also make the purchasing process easier for themselves by using the services of a real estate agent.

There are countless reasons why many Millennials and other buyers utilize the services of agents, including the following:

Fiduciary Responsibility

Agents work with their clients’ best interests in mind and will always ensure they are protected financially.

Help Navigating Contracts & Paperwork

Real estate laws are complex and always changing, which is why the knowledge of an experienced real estate agent is handy to have.

Find the Perfect Dream Home

Customers may think they know what they want in a home, but there are more things that should be considered than just square footage and the aesthetic appeal of a bathroom. An experienced real estate agent will know what to look for beyond mere first appearances.

Pricing and Selling

Agents are familiar with local markets and will eliminate any margin of error that may be found on online pricing sites.

Code of Ethics

Realtors® must also follow a Code of Ethics that ensures all of the conduct between customers is performed morally.

Featured Testimonial

I moved to PA from Washington State and learned that realty is local. There were things that I thought I knew about buying a house previously but boy was I wrong. Linda was very patient with me but also did not hold back when she saw potential problems, and always made sure I had all the information I needed before making a decision and didn’t belittle concerns to just get a sale. Above all else, and this was the most important thing to me, Linda has a high ethical standard, is very transparent in her approach and is someone I trusted making one of the biggest decisions of my life. – A.
