Many real estate agents and home builders have noticed a major trend in recent years: the average age of their clients has increased. Young buyers simply haven’t been buying homes like they used to, especially Millennial buyers. Many people think of Millennials as young 20-somethings, but that’s not the case any longer. The “Millennial” period runs from the early 80s to the late 90s, and many of the younger Millennials are in their mid-30s now. They’re at the age where they have completed their education and settled into their careers. Many are married with children.
Selling your home is a lengthy process that almost always takes longer than anyone expects. If you are a first-time seller, you are likely in for a lot more than you expect. Home sales aren’t only about getting your house on the market, but about doing everything you can to make it the best house on the market. No matter when you are selling, there is going to be competition, and you should assume that the potential buyer is going to be very thorough in their research.
Are you ready to buy a new house? Before you jump right in and start visiting potential homes with a real estate agent, you need to make sure you have done everything needed to make an offer on your dream home.
Home sellers do everything they can to make a house look picture perfect for a home showing. What you are seeing is the “Instagram perfect” version of the home where none of the downsides will be visible.
