Millennials are the largest group of home buyers in the nation right now. Even in the luxury market, Millennials are a major driving force. To some in the real estate industry it feels as though this wave of luxury home and first-time home consumers came out of the blue. One thing is clear, Millennials now make up a crucial part of the home-buying market. They want different things out of their homes though and sellers should be aware of the evolving tastes of the Millennials.
Here’s what real estate agents, landscape designers, maintenance companies, and even homeowners in Vero Beach considering selling their homes need to know about this generation when it comes to landscaping.
Hi-Tech Landscaping For Millennial Home-Buyers
Millennials are tech savvy. This generation is quick to embrace tech like Wi-Fi controllers and rain sensors. Equip your home with a hassle free robot lawnmower that communicates with their smart phones and they’ll likely be impressed. Solar powered walk-way or garden lights will be preferred. But make sure they are high quality. This generation is impressed with sustainability, not cheap plastic.
Sustainable Landscaping For Millennial Home-Buyers
Speaking of sustainability, Millennials aren’t going to be impressed with how well you’ve killed stray weeds with RoundUp. They want eco-friendly pest control. They’ll be more impressed with a system that catches and redistributes rain water to make the most of water conservation. They are looking for xeric landscapes and native plant garden. They don’t want a labor intensive garden, but do want to grow their own food. Simple square-foot gardens and raised beds are sure to impress. Always use eco-friendly landscaping cloth and non-treated mulch to make your home move-in ready.
When planting, remember, Millennials might now recognize native plants, but they do prefer them in their landscaping. So, if you’re going for curb appeal, choose beautiful gardens of native wildflowers. And by all means, make sure the plants weren’t treated with neo-nics, because the Millennials may even ask you where you got your flowering plants! See, Millennials care about our pollinators. Include native species of milkweed and other native wildflowers.
