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.
