We help all kinds of buyers including generation x home buyers.
The percentage of Generation X home buyers has increased steadily over the past few years because the people belonging to this generation believe that a house is the first step towards success. Many are willing to pay huge EMI’s and take up extra jobs to fulfil their dream of owning a home.
Connecticut Real Estate & Investment has observed that Generation X home buyers follow certain trends while buying a new house. These include:
- Ready to move-in homes
The new generation does not believe in spending a lot of time in furnishing a house or installing new appliances. They look for homes which already have all amenities in place and are ready for moving in. They prefer homes which come with modern technology, especially wireless connectivity and smart heating and cooling systems. This saves their time and effort and reduces the adjustment period.
- Bigger properties
Unlike the older generation which believes in downsizing, the younger generation prefers big homes with many rooms for accommodating a growing family. These home buyers do not hesitate in paying larger installments every month because they really need the extra space.
- Green homes
There are many Generation X home buyers who look for green homes in order to reduce electricity bills in the long run. They expect the new home to have green technology features pre-installed to ensure that the home is energy-efficient.
- Efficient design
The design of a home plays a very important role in swaying the decision of Generation X home buyers. They usually go for a home where there is a connection between the outdoor and indoor spaces so that the house looks bigger. Extra storage space and a bigger garage are also features that they wish to find in their new home. Flexible space matters because it can be converted into a den, library or any other room according to the choice of the home buyer.
- A ‘wow’ factor
Another trend among Generation X home buyers is that they look for a great feature which stands out and adds value to the property. This can be a pool, a big fireplace, premium quality furniture, huge bath tub or a large living room. They do not hesitate in paying extra for these impressive additional features.
Connecticut Real Estate & Investment makes sure that Generation X home buyers get what they look for in their dream home in Connecticut.

“A Buyer’s agent represents the interests of the buyer in a real estate transaction. The Buyer’s agent’s responsibilities to the buyer are: undivided loyalty, obedience, diligence, disclosure, confidentiality, accounting, and reasonable skill and care. All duties are fiduciary — they are owed exclusively to the buyer – NOT to the seller.” – CT Dept. of Consumer Protection
A buyer’s agent can work for a traditional agency which can put you at risk. Traditional agencies take listings and promise to get the top price for the seller. If you don’t work with an exclusive Connecticut Real Estate Brokerage that Never takes listings, you will likely end up signing a dual agency agreement.
