The time is now, and the people…Generation Y, also known as the Millennials, the largest generation population since the baby boom era and entering the home buying market as first time homeowners. You probably fit into this very category, or know someone who does–born between 1980 and the late 90’s, YOU are one of the leaders of the new frontier. And because of this fact, you also factor heavily into decisions made by the home buying industry.


You want Mobile accessibility to info

More than 50 percent of millennials search for homes on their phones and, among those, 26 percent end up buying a home they found that way, according to data from the National Association of Realtors.
