Millennials are becoming an important segment of the home buying market. What can you do make your home more attractive to these buyers? Here are four things that Millennials are looking for in a home:
1. Rooms with modern functionality. Millennials are not looking for generic rooms, but rather media rooms as opposed to living rooms, spas instead of bathrooms, and studios in place of garages. Closet space and open floor plans are also a must.
2. High-efficiency, low-maintenance landscaping. Millennials aren’t interested in things like elaborate gardens that require a lot of outside work, but fun landscaping embellishments like hammocks could potentially catch a Millennial’s eye.
3. Storage options. In our area, big storage spaces are an absolute must for Millennials as well as military buyers.
4. Walkability. Though it’s a bit difficult to come by in our area, Millennials enjoy convenience and being close to communities with nearby stores, restaurants, and bike paths. Clarksville is working on expanding our downtown area, which will allow more access to these kinds of amenities for potential buyers.
Open floor plans are a must!
