What Generation Xers Want-Family, Values, Home Life May Surprise You

by San Jose REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe

Do you know much about Generation X and what they want? Do you know what is important to Gen Xers? Known as Xers for short, these statistics from the California Association of REALTORS may surprise you.

Generation X and their Real Estate Wants

While you might guess that Generation Xers value technology, it's not just for the sake of technology itself-it's for what technology can do to improve their family life.

You can see from the infographic, Xers value family time. Since the home is the heart of the family, it's easy to see Generation X values home life and home-based activities, such as cooking, baking, gardening and do-it-yourself home projects.

Here are some statistics on Xers from The Futures Company:

  • 51% have a child under 18 living at home.
  • 21% have an aging parent or in-law in the home
  • 45% wish they had more ability to monitor their home via their mobile device.

Thanks for reading "What Generation Xers Want-Family, Values, Home Life May Surprise You".

I think, a lot of families now choose live together longer. It is quite practical.

I read the infographic this morning, and found it interesting. With so much talk about Boomers and Millennials, X'ers are often overlooked.
