Why Millennials Prefer to Work With a Local Agent

by Glenda Daughety & Team

“Location, Location, Location!”  We’ve all hear that mantra, especially if you’ve entered the real estate market.  It means basically one thing – it matters where a home is located.  You can have two identical houses, but they could vary in value dramatically depending on where they are. That’s why is should be no surprise that home buyers and sellers are choosing local agents who know the local market. And surprisingly, it’s the millennial generation who is doing this, despite their proficiency with technology.

A financial wellness company named CentSai surveyed over 2000 millennials.  They found that a surprisingly high number of those surveyed, 75%, would use a local agent over an online agent.  And a further 71% said they would also use a local lender.

Survey respondents cited many reasons for their choice to go local, “including personal touch & handholding, longstanding relationships, local knowledge, and amount of hassle.”

Doria Lavagnino, Cofounder & President of CentSai had this to say:

“We were surprised to learn that online providers are not yet as big a disruptor in this sector as we first thought, despite purported cost savings. We found that millennials place a high value on the personal touch and knowledge of a local agent. Buying a home for the first time is daunting, and working with a local agent—particularly an agent referred by a parent or friend—could provide peace of mind.”

This lines up with a study performed by Consumer Housing Trends, which found that millennials prefer a more personal approach when dealing with real estate. Millennials rely on agents to advise them and become strategic partners.

Of course, technology still plays a massive role in the process.  But in the end, millennials want someone they can trust, who knows the neighborhood and can guide them along the way.

List Your Home in Baton Rouge Now!

by Glenda Daughety & Team

Have you been putting off selling your home in Baton Rouge, waiting for the right time to put it on the market? Well, remember in school we learned about supply and demand – the greater the demand, the higher the price.

It turns out that The National Association of Realtors reported that the inventory of homes, in general, is at a 3.8 month supply, which is a lot lower than the 6-month mark needed for a normal market.

When you add to this the amount of buyers on the market, known as buyer traffic, then this drives up the price.  In Louisiana, buyer traffic was found to be very strong.  This is good news for Baton Rouge! This means buyers have more competition.  If you list your home in Baton rouge now, you can take advantage of this situation.

Plus many homeowners underestimate the amount of equity they have in their homes. According to a study performed by Fannie Mae, only 37% of homeowners think they have more than 20% equity in their homes.  Yet, according to CoreLogic’s Equity Report, 78.9% actually have that much equity in their home! What does this all mean? It means that many homeowners may feel trapped and don’t list their home because they undervalue it.  This contributes to a lower home inventory and greater demand.

If you’re wondering If now is the best time to sell, talk to us and we can help you determine the equity you have in your home and your opportunities in our market.
