Staying Up to Date with Millennial Homebuyers in Kitsap County
It is no secret that Millennials are now the largest population, surpassing Baby Boomers about four years ago.
Not only are Millennials a big portion of the local buyers market here in Kitsap County, but they are also a very smart demographic to target.
Despite the widespread opinions that Millennials only want to live in chic city dwellings, many of them actually prefer to set down roots in the country and suburban neighborhoods.
Therefore, if you want to get your Kitsap County listing sold quickly, and yield a high net-profit from the sale, you’re going to need to make it attractive to Millennials. Here is how it is done.
Millennials Want Room To Roam
Despite the recent trend in tiny homes, which seemed to win over the younger set, it turns out that Millennials actually prefer to own a house with at least 2,500 square feet. If your Kitsap County House is not that big, find ways to make it seem more spacious than it actually is. Strategic staging, lighting, and neutral paint colors can go a long way in making your house feel larger than it is as well.
