What is the “typical” home buyers are purchasing?

Each year, the National Association of Realtors® reports its insights into the characteristics of the homes purchased across the United States the previous year. Last year, 83% of the homes purchased were detached single family homes. There was only a median of 12 miles between the homes that recent buyers purchased and the homes that they moved from. Heating and cooling costs were the most important environmental features for recent buyers, with 84% finding these features at least somewhat important. For buyers 36 years and younger, commuting costs were more important than heating and cooling costs at 39% and 31% respectively. For buyers 36 years and younger, the expected length of time they plan to remain in the home they purchased was only 10 years, compared to 20 years for buyers 52–61 years.

Mark is truly a wonderful agent. He listened to all of our needs and exceeded all of our expectations. He is down to earth and extremely patient. He did not try to steer us into a higher price point -- he worked within our price point and went out of his way for us on numerous occasions. Both of us felt incredibly comfortable with him. Once we selected our home, he efficiently moved us through all aspects of the close. I wish that all agents had the integrity that Mark possesses -- he was as genuine and honest as you can get. I'd highly recommend him to all seeking a home in the area.

Mark clearly listened to my needs and desires for a new property. The houses he showed me all fit my description of what I wanted, even though there were other reasons I did not choose them. The final property on Lousiana Ave. was the perfect one! Mark's attention to detail was unfailing during the entire process. He was a major reason that this purchase was not as stressful as it could have been!
