Here is a great post I saw today of what Millennials want out of the real estate process.  Why should you care?  Zillow says they make up 55% of buyers!

An Open Letter from Millennials to the Real Estate Industry

Let me summarize it.

  1. They want to use technology to simplify things, like electronic documents and file sharing.
  2. They want to screen properties BEFORE they ever visit them.  This means lots of photos, aerial images, virtual tours and we think floor plans to help people visualize how their family can live in the property, not how the seller currently is living in it. Lots of research out there that says 70% to 90% of buyers want to see floor plans when they search.  Leverage this and market it at the listing appointment to get the listing every time!
  3. Be the expert on the process and help people understand it.
  4. Be creative.

Great advice.  We can help.
