Real estate is a market. Buyers reasons for buying and the type of property they buy depends on what supply is available, at what price and whether it fits the buyers needs from a location, affordability or amenities offered.
Each individual market will be as different as buyers needs. It is important to understand those needs and what works best for the buyer. Home ownership is expensive and rewarding at the same time. It is one of the biggest purchases many will make in their life time. It does not matter what generation the buyer is from as much as what his or her need are.
People’s life’s and circumstances change over time so the house that fits your needs to day might not fit your needs in the future. Perhaps that is why it is important to be knowledgeable and make as few misstates as possible.
