Welcome back, to a new year and a new blog post. Today we are talking about why we believe 2015 is "The Year of the Millennial."
How do we know this, and why is it important? Well, there are 82 million millennial's out there right now in our country , many of who intend to buy a home in the next 4 years. So, what exactly qualifies someone as a millennial? Generally, the term "millennial" refers to someone who was born between 1980 and the early 2000's. If you are thinking of selling your home, it's important you hire an agent who understands what's important to this huge group of buyers, as well as how to communicate with them.
We have several members of our team who are millennial's themselves, and are joining us today to give you some tips on how to reach and communicate with these buyers.
First off, millennial's love social media. They created it, after all. Millennial's also rely heavily on online reviews when making any major purchase. Many of our clients come to us through sites like Zillow and Trulia because they are able to see reviews of agents and make decisions based on that. Millennial's want to have their agent with them every step of the process, because buying your first home is new and scary.
With millennial's, the preferred forms of communication are different. Text messaging is huge and when you text your millennial clients, you are able to get faster responses and clearer communication.
One thing that real estate agents are going to need to do to keep up is integrating technology with the devices we have. Tech integration is huge for the future of real estate ,and the faster you jump on the bandwagon, the better off you will be in the future.
As you can see, True Group real estate agents know how to reach out and convert millennial buyers. If you are thinking about selling, or know a millennial who is interested in buying, make sure you reach out to us today! We can make your home buying and selling experiences smooth and worry-free.
