Inside the Mind of the Millennial Homebuyer
From linoleum floors to wallpaper, homeowner trends change with the times! Discover what has Millennials excited about a home and what they could do without.
1. Modest Updates
Think move-in ready! This, after all, is the on-demand generation. A dollar spent on updating a bathroom is money well spent or fresh paint goes a long way.
2. Going Green
The falling prices of solar panels combined with the ever-improving product quality make this a highly enticing feature to have for an environmentally conscious younger demographic.
3. Outdoor Lifestyle
Outdoor space should have a "relaxing retreat" vibe. Adding a single outdoor patio with some exterior lighting would go a long way to painting the picture here.
4. Think Practical Space
The idea of having a beautifully designed room that is used for a grand total of 5 times a year (we're looking at your dining room) wouldn't be a great use of space. Converting this space into an everyday lounge area is the right alternative.
5. Smarter Home
Adding a smart thermostat or security features like a doorbell camera or floodlights with a camera are not as costly as they may seem (check out our Smart Home Guide). Allowing a Millennial to access their home systems via a smartphone is a great selling feature.
