Top Ways to Stay More Knowledgeable Than Your Buyers!


According to a a Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Survey, 77% of 18-35 year old Americans surveyed believe they’ve become increasingly knowledgeable about home ownership.

Everywhere these buyers turn, real estate information is at their fingertips. Gen X and Gen Y buyers (18-35 years old) have increased access to media coverage on real estate, especially on Long Island and the metro area. Here’s a few more key findings that you may find useful:

  • They’re serious. These buyers are willing to adjust their lifestyle  to save for a home by eating out less, working a second job or moving back home with their parents.
  • They know their stuff. They’re doing their homework before buying a home. They know interest rates, market statistics and loan details.
  • They know when they’re ready. Gen X and Gen Y want to make sure they are ready to own and can truly afford the buy while maintaining their lifestyle.

These buyers are a great opportunity. Here’s a few ways to grow your business with new buyers:

  • Know how to use the latest technology tools to deliver them the info they want
  • Get a real estate website to give them a place to go online to search
  • Market your business online so they can find you and they
  • Educate prospective buyers on the market, the pre-approval process & how much home they can afford
