A family in a single-family home can be expected to stay in the home approximately 13 years before moving out. With that in mind, making good choices which you as the home owner will enjoy, but will also appeal to the prospective buyer may be something to consider more. The largest segment that is in a position to buy a home are Millennials.
A Forbe’s report states, Millennials are the biggest group of home buyers in America, 32% of the market, according to a March 2015 report from the National Association of Realtors. Millennial homeowners are saddled with obstacles no previous generation has had to face, like an average student loan debt per borrower that is that’s both monstrous and unprecedented. They’re also less romantic about the whole process than their predecessors — buying before marriage, owning for shorter periods of time, and flipping with gusto and success.
