There is a good storm brewing and it is compliments of the millennials who are entering the home ownership market! Recent news stories have made the point that, despite the student debt issues often in the news, the millennials have been stashing away the bucks. And this stash, at least for 1 in 6 of them, is amounting to over $100K in savings- WELL DONE FOLKS!!!
In a recent Real Estate article in REALTOR Mag it was pointed out that:
“…Millennials came of age during the Great Recession and the financial crisis. They’ve faced high levels of student loan debt. But still, the survey shows that many are getting their financial lives in order, and home buying is increasingly on their to-do list….”
This is great news! Both for the millennial buyers who are about to become homeowners but also for all those folks who have been wanting to sell, but had held back on listing their homes for sale. This subtle shift brings to the housing market buyers as well as excitement and energy- which, after all, is the trademark of the millennial generation.
As we approach the SPRING Listing and Selling market in Connecticut it is important to be sure you have made your home Ready for $ale. Today’s buyer is a discerning and knowledgeable buyer. They have tastes spurred in part due to the abundance of home flipping, selling and decorating shows that one can find on such popular channels as HGTV (the most well known). They also, read above, have $$ to qualify for a mortgage and purchase a property. So why shouldn’t it be yours?!
Thinking of a 2018 sale ?
Then the time to start is NOW- set up your appointment, discuss the numbers specific to you and your property, make the most of the warmer weather- when it arrives and be ready to RISE & SHINE above the competition when the SPRING Market begins.
