There are many factors that go into finding the perfect Scottsdale home, and for today’s homebuyers, children and grandparents play a significant role in the process.
According to a recent survey conducted by Coldwell Banker Real Estate, the current generation of parents is largely concerned with family needs when searching for the right home—more so than their Baby Boomer predecessors.
Of the 2,800 parents surveyed, 79 percent of Millennials (ages 18-34) and 70 percent from Generation X (ages 35-49) stated that the majority of their purchasing decisions were based upon the needs of their children. This includes real estate purchases. Many Millennial and Gen X families will consider factors such as square footage, nearby schools and kid-friendly amenities like parks and playgrounds before buying a home.
Only 50 percent of parents from the Baby Boomer generation admitted to sharing the same priorities when raising their families. For them, convenience to jobs and commuting times were of the highest importance when choosing a home.
Kids aren’t the only ones affecting the way buyers shop for homes. Grandparents will often factor into the equation as well. More and more people are considering the needs of their parents when looking for a new home, whether that means choosing a location nearby or even purchasing homes with guest casitas.
In Scottsdale, there are also several communities that attract retirees with top-notch golf and resort amenities. This is something that drives many families, especially those from out-of-state, to purchase homes in and around Scottsdale.
