  • Set a Schedule for Each Day

Working with Younger Buyers - Join Team Laffey

Millennials and Gen Z make up a larger portion of real estate clients every year, with many of them looking to purchase a home for the first time in their lives. That makes young buyers one of the most important demographics in real estate – a trend that is unlikely to change any time soon. Are you doing everything you can to build strong relationships with young buyers? Get some inspiration with these five tips for building a better rapport with young buyers.

  1. Make It Easy for Them to Conduct Research Online
    Young buyers are more comfortable than any other generation with conducting online research, so it's important to make it as easy as possible for them to learn things online. When they're house hunting, this may mean access to virtual tours, virtual open houses, and of course, detailed listings. But they'll also want to be able to learn about what you offer as an agent, what they'll like about specific neighborhoods, and general buying real estate advice that can help them make informed decisions.
