Real Estate Facts
You might think you know quite a bit about real estate, but there might still be a few things that could surprise you. This month, we will be looking at some interesting real estate facts for 2017.
Fact #1 – Millennial Buyers
In 2017, millennials are going to make up around 33% of the people who are buying homes, and it is likely this number will continue to rise. It is important for real estate professionals to make sure they know how to market to this demographic if they hope to sell properties to them.
Fact #2 – More Young Buyers Are Saving
Millennials and other young buyers are starting to save money for down payments on their home. In 2016, 17% of millennials started saving, and again, this number is likely to keep on rising.
Fact #3 – The Economy Is Getting Stronger
If estimates hold true, the economy will continue to get stronger, and it could rise by as much as 2% by 2018. While that might not seem like much, it truly is, and it helps to increase the buying power; this means more home sales.
Fact #4 – Affordable Homes Are Still Available
Even though the economy might be improving, and the real estate market is strong, many find that homes are still considered affordable in many places.
Fact #5 – Mortgage Rates Will Remain Manageable
It is true that the mortgage rates could go up in the coming years. However, the good news is that it should not be by more than 5%. This will help to keep the mortgage payments affordable, and it can help to encourage more people to buy a property rather than rent one.
Fact #6 – Rental Properties Still a Good Investment
Although some people will become buyers rather than renters, there is always going to be a need for quality homes for renters. This means buying a piece of property and turning it into an investment property is still a fantastic idea, and it is something you will certainly want to consider.
Fact #7 – Everyone’s Looking Online
When people are searching for a property to buy, the search usually begins online. In fact, the bulk of the search is likely to take place online today. This means real estate agents really need to step up their game. They need to utilize the latest technologies and make sure they are marketing properties online to reach the largest audience. Once someone sees a property they like online, they will then contact the agent to learn more and to get an in-person tour.

These are some of the facts about real estate that could help determine your actions in this field over the coming years.
