Are you thinking about putting your Las Vegas home on the market? If you are, you probably need to start considering the attitudes of young people in order to make the sale go faster. This may seem confusing, but the “nice house” of the past does not necessarily mean the same thing today. The attitudes of younger people have changed dramatically over the last ten years, and what they consider important is going to be a deciding factor in their consideration of your home as the one they buy. It doesn’t take a genius to understand that younger people are the ones buying houses more than older people, so you essentially have to make your product more appealing to them or they will look elsewhere. So how can you make your home more attractive to a younger buyer?
Young people today are concerned with two things above most others. They want their lives to be unencumbered by extra work that they feel is not necessary, and they want to be helpful to the community as a whole. These are actually dramatic shifts when compared to previous generations who were taught to work hard and keep to yourself. Younger people want to minimize the amount of work they do in the search for an easier life, and they would like these choices also to not have a negative impact on the culture as a whole. So how does this apply to your home? It means that you need to rethink some of the choices that you made in order to make your home appealing to your own generation. You need to look at the things that younger people might consider complications for no benefit to themselves. One perfect example of this is your yard in Las Vegas.
When Las Vegas was growing dramatically, people realized that with enough money they can remake their home to be anything they want it to be, even it it is completely un-natural for that area. We put grass lawns into the suburbs of a desert, and watered them with artificial sprinkler systems to keep them green. Shut off the water an the grass would die within a week, but we were willing to do it to have that nice house and yard we remember from our parents. Younger people view this as wasteful of both the community resources and their time. They don’t want to waste water that is a dwindling resource in Las Vegas, and they also don’t want to waste their weekends mowing. In addition, they don’t want to waste their money paying someone else to keep their lawn looking good when they hardly spend any time there at all. What is the solution to this issue? Install artificial grass so that the look and feel of real grass is there, but the cost and upkeep is not. Younger people view this as good for the community as well as their own lifestyles, and will consider your house over others that do not fit with their attitudes. Make your home attractive to the buyers and it will sell faster.
