Who Are Typical Buyers and Sellers in Today’s Real Estate Market?

Posted by

The National Association of Realtors has published their 2016 profile of buyers and sellers and here are the takeaways:

  • In 1981, the typical buyer’s age was between 25-34, for the third year in a row, the 2016 average age of a buyer is 44.
  • Newly-constructed homes made up 14% of all home sales in 2016, while 86% were resales.
  • Sellers live in their homes an average of 10 years.
  • Houses that have been sold were on the market an average of four weeks. (If your house has been on the market longer, it may be time for a price reduction.)

If typical buyers are between the ages of 25-34, and your home is overdue for an update, let’s talk! Start freshening up and streamlining so that you can love your house and make selling it easy.  I will work closely with you in guiding you step-by-step.
