What do Millennials Want From a Realtor?

Millennials have become the largest group of recent home buyers in the United Sates, according to the 2014 National Association of REALTORS® Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends study. The study compared the differences of recent home buyers and sellers and found that Millennials (those age 33 and younger) comprised 31 percent of recent home buyers.

I have found Millennials to be very educated consumers in general. Most already know what they are looking for in a home thanks to online research and come in with firm ideas on their likes and dislikes, locations they would consider, and their timeline.

What Millenials are most often looking for in someone to help guide them through the process of buying. Looking at homes, negotiating the deal, and helping them through the financing to closing. Compromises are often needed to be made for many first-time home buyers, Millennials or not, so this is always where experience from a Realtor can come into the equation.Shanna Lafontaine is a Realtor with RE/MAX Affiliates who works Metro Columbus, Dublin, Hilliard, Powell, Worthington, Westerville, Delaware and surrounding Central Ohio areas helping both Buyers and Sellers.
