Young Builders Deliver Personalized Attention
Millennial buyers crave authenticity and quality, and a new generation of homebuilders is adopting the personalized approach that younger buyers crave.
I've seen these young professionals who strive to deliver quality to the homebuyer and make a good name for their company. Some of the best builders that I have seen are really interactive with their customers, learning what the customer 's needs and objectives are for the home. They talk about the homeowners' daily lives, where they like to come in from the outside and drop key and coats, where they like to eat in the home, where they tend to congregate for entertainment.
The younger buyers are seeking a smaller footprint but one that's really well thought out and takes their lifestyle into account.
Many of these younger buyers also value interactive products within the home including the smart thermostats and energy monitoring tools. Homeowners want to be able to use their smart phone apps to see what temperature in their home before they arrive.
With their smart homes, these buyers will experience the benefits of a well-built, high-performance wall assembly and be able to track the impact in their monthly budget.
These homeowners -- the buyers who succeed with them -- realize that less can be more. Less square footage, if it's well designed and eliminates wasted space, can actually deliver a better living experience, and can cost shift to provide better materials and finishes.
Millennial homebuyers want to have a good story to tell about their home. They will take pride if it's smart and interactive, and is resource efficient and share that story with family, friends and neighbors, creating a very positive image for the builder.
