remax integrity: Millennials and the Real Estate Market... By Jan Sohlman RE/MAX - 02/17/16 03:12 AM
What do we know about Millennials and the real estate market?  We know that 33% of American  millennials expect to buy a home with the next 5 years. We got this information from the Buffini magazine 2016.  
Studies show that in the USA it is 23% cheeper for millennial households to buy a home instead of renting.

remax integrity: Home buyer stats and why to have them use a realtor in the first place - 12/02/15 08:46 AM
I found it very interesting articles  to the average home buyer.  Here is one.... is that 32% of buyers were first time home buyers, and that 24% of home buyers were single (15% females, 9% males). Also, although 31% of all home buyers were not married, the average age of the typical home buyer was 44 years.
Another interesting statistic is that the expected tenure of these home buyers is 14 years. I believe that is a lot longer than in years past. Didn't it used to be a 7 year turn around?
I have been working with a lot of buyers in … (2 comments)
