Millennials Leading Homebuyers, Most Likely to Use Real Estate Agents

For the fifth consecutive year, millennials had the highest share of home buying activity amongst varying generations, according to the National Association of REALTOR®’s 2018 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends Study. Over one-third of home purchases were made by millennials over the past year, holding 36% of the market share. The other trends that the survey found were that millennials are more likely to live closer to family and friends, and they are also the group to most likely use a real estate agent, with 90% purchasing through an agent. In the survey, millennials shared that the top benefit with real estate agents was the knowledge they possess of the buying process.
