As we know each generation has different tastes in life and this includes the Vancouver homes we buy. The 18-35 age group is the new type of homebuyers and unlike the generation before them they have simple needs.
Mellennials homebuyers are looking for purposeful properties equipped with the technology capabilities they have grown up with and they're quite prepared to handle home renovations.
Based on a recent survey by Wakefield Research for Better Homes and Gardens.
One third of those interviewed said they'd prefer a 'fixer-upper" to a house with minimal repairs needed and they consider themselves handy.
What's important to them? A tv in the kitchen and entertainment in every room of the house! They're also minimalists and would prefer an essential home compared to a luxury home.
Technology raned high and included energy efficient washer and dryer, security system and smart thermostat. 64% said they wouldnt consider a home without the above features.
