Trulia released their 2017 housing report and, 83% of millennials say they plan on buying a home and 72% are looking to purchase in 2018. Yowza. That’s a large percentage. So what are these hot buyers looking for?
Well, according to Better Homes & Gardens’ annual survey of trends in the United States, they found out that:
- 64% say the ideal sized home is about 2,100 square feet — that’s a lot of space. Partially finished off basements, anyone?
- 64% want renovated/update kitchens.
- 60% want renovated bathrooms.
- 59% want deck or patio space — I’ve personally seen “garden space” become a more important want.
That sounds like a pretty sweet house, if you ask me. But keep in mind, this is a survey across the US, not just in the beautiful state of WI. Thinking about moving this year or next? It would appear there’s definitely a buyer out there for you! Give me a call and I’d be happy to talk Green Bay and De Pere real estate.
