Who do you think of when you think of a luxury home buyer? Doctors, lawyers, engineers? This is what most of us think, but, believe it or not the majority of luxury home buyers are business owners or entrepreneurs (32%). This is followed by corporate executives (16%), attorneys (10%), and physicians (9%) with the remaining being retirees, accountants, middle managers, and sales professionals. In addition to this a majority of luxury home owners (90%) are college graduates. The average luxury home buyer is not what we see on TV or in movies. Most live below their means, buy used cars, didn’t receive an inheritance and see home ownership as a wealth building tool. Surprising isn’t it? Not who we think the luxury home buyer is.
