Are millennials slackers or geniuses?

thFJJ9U32N

Millennials often get a bad rap for being unemployed, living with their parents, and putting off getting married or having kids, but, according to an article from Business Insider, there’s more to 18- to 30-year-olds than meets the eye!

  1. Millennials do most of their shopping in physical stores.  Sure, they are tech savvy and frequently shop online. But millennials haven’t completely abandoned stores and shopping malls. They like to touch and feel products before they buy them, and still appreciate the experience of shopping in a store. In fact, millennials still complete 54% of shopping in physical stores, according to the report.
  2. Millennials save more money than the national average. “Contrary to popular rhetoric regarding a highly challenged consumer who may be burdened with debt and living ‘paycheck to paycheck,’ our survey of millennials suggests the majority of the demographic (74% of total responses) saves money every month compared to 26% who do not,” the report says.
  3. Millennials are planning to buy homes. They are delaying home-buying and marriage and kids, but they are planning to get to those life milestones eventually. When asked what they are saving for, millennials said (1) a house, (2) a car, and (3) retirement.
  4. Millennials aren’t just relying on Uber and Lyft to get around. They are actually buying cars. Like with homeownership, many millennials have delayed purchasing cars. But car buying among this demographic is rapidly rising and will continue to grow, according to the report. About 64% of millennials plan to buy a car in the next two years, and most of those who don’t plan to buy a car already own one, according to the data. Only 5% of respondents said car-sharing services like Uber and Lyft serve as a replacement for owning a car.

BUYING OR SELLING? Use a Realtor, Here’s why….

994930.jpg

Don’t Take Risks, Consult a Realtor®

Buying and selling homes is difficult. Trying to navigate the process alone is risky. Too often, people try to act as their own real estate professional, but in the end, find it was not worth the risk.  Here’s why:

For Buyers

Realtors® can provide pricing information that is otherwise difficult and confusing to find with a simple internet search.

Working with a real estate professional adds a level of diplomacy to what can be an emotional experience. When you get into the negotiating process, emotions can run high. Words can be exchanged and decisions made that may later be regretted. Realtors® serve as the go-between communicator, who can stay cool and level-headed.

Real estate professionals are time savers. While you’re at work, they are expediting your home-buying process.

They are paperwork masters. When it comes to closing, contracts and titles, Realtors® can keep the process moving on time and spot problems if they arise.

For Sellers

Real estate professionals dramatically increase the exposure of your home. Listing with a Realtor® means your property will appear on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), putting it on the radar of other real estate agents with clients looking for a home.

Real estate agents use their connections. They operate in a network of agents and have marketing plans that will help draw attention to your home.

Highlighting its best features, Realtors® show potential buyers through your home, so you do not have to be present. This adds a layer of security and takes the pressure off the homeowner to be the salesperson.

Finally, Realtors® bring negotiating skills that most homeowners do not have. They are contractually obligated to work in your best interest, so getting the best deal for you is at the top of their priority list..
