First-Time Buyers Are Back

We posted up an article a few days ago about how millennials are moving to more suburban areas. That post helps to explain what is going on here. The millennial generation has been having to rent or stay with family due to lower income and poor economy, but now that things are starting to pick back up those people are looking to move out and are looking to purchase.

Millennials are transforming the suburbs.

With cities expanding and cost of housing moving upwards, many millennials are beginning to move towards the suburbs for more affordable housing. This generation moving to the suburbs is contributing to some huge changes in what we have classically known suburbs as. The suburban environment is beginning a shift toward mini-cities rather than traditional suburbs, due to the desire of homeowners to have bike lanes, greenways, entertainment, food, bars, and parks all within a short distance. Researchers have discovered that this new generation desires to drive less and have a more active and busy community that provides amenities normally associated with larger cities.

Pokemon is too much fun to worry about being safe!

Many of you might have seen posts and advertisements for “Pokemon Go.” This is not just a game some high schoolers are playing, but is being played by all ages everywhere and is bringing people together to have fun and find Pokemon. While this is true, some places are issuing warnings like “Pikachu is not worth it!” by Morrisville NC telling residents to focus on the road while driving and not playing the addicting game.
While you are out playing with friends, just make sure you and those around you are playing in an appropriate and safe way.

Existing Home Sales Skyrocketing!

With increasing home values and a growing availability to entertainment and food, Raleigh area homeowners are choosing to update rather than upgrade. As people are becoming more financially stable and the economy in North Carolina, specifically Raleigh, continues to grow we expect to see a desire to sell a current place of living in order to upgrade to a newer and more modern style home. The difference is that while the economy is growing and home values are rising, the access and convenience of being close to shops, restaurants, entertainment, movies, and sports is becoming more of a priority than a larger, newer home. What most folks are doing is making the decision to perfect or renovate their existing home. So instead of putting money into purchasing a newer house, many are expanding their existing homes, adding pools, gardens, porches, driveways, home theaters, etc. If you are one of those people looking for renovation ideas check out our pinterest for hundreds of ideas to personalize your home the way you want it, even if you are on a budget.
