More on Millennials & Housing: Location Valued Most
Have you seen the most recent Builder & Developer issue? Great article by Meyers Research: The Perennial Millennial!
|Millennials value Location most – SalesTouch can tell your story!|
As we’ve noted in earlier blogs: millennials will shape the housing market for years to come. This group may have delayed home buying beyond previous generations but…they’re ready to buy!
Meyers suggests that we knew home buying was a priority but..55% want to purchase within the next 5 years! An even more striking statistic: 25 million plan to purchase within the next 3 years!
There’s frequently debate regarding what is most valued by this demographic — square footage, open floor plans, amenities, location .. the list goes on. Meyers reports that location is first in their list of priorities — followed by price and outdoor space.
How to tell a location story effectively in your sales offices? We’d like to suggest SalesTouch — CPS’ interactive touchscreen system.
