Millennials and Smart Homes Are Changing Real Estate

Overview
Close More

Millennials (born between the mid-1980s to early 2000s) are now the largest generation, and 2015 will be the year that they become the majority in the U.S. workforce. Recent data shows that nearly 50% of Millennials support green building, nearly twice what was reported by Baby Boomers.

What are the top priorities of this consumer segment and how will the real estate market need to adapt to meet these demands? This 1.5-hour course will answer these questions by providing real estate brokers with the most recent data on Millennials, their buying preferences, their approach to “green” and high performance, and their impact on the real estate market.
