    Real Estate Investing

    One of the critical factors to consider in real estate investing and selling is the demographics of your market. Major shifts in a population’s demographics can have a significant impact on real estate trends for years to come – this includes real estate pricing and the type of properties in demand. As such, it is significant to stay up-to-date with the rising trends and get to know the demographics of your market to get ahead of the competition.  

    Top 10 Cities with Youngest Homeowners

    Using data from the US Census Bureau, Lending Tree found that some of Utah’s largest cities have the youngest homeowners in the country. Provo, UT —the top city with the youngest homeowners in the country— has an average homeowner age below 50. This is below the national homeowner age, which is 54. Targeting areas with a younger population and growing housing demand may indicate increasing property appreciation rate. Likewise, rising demands for land and rental properties mean better cash flow and higher profits.

    Here is the complete list of the top US cities with the youngest homeowners:

    1. Provo, UT
    2. Ogden, UT
    3. Salt Lake City, UT
    4. Des Moines, IA
    5. Austin, Texas
    6. Raleigh, NC
    7. Omaha, NE
    8. Minneapolis, MN
    9.  McAllen, TX
    10.  Houston, TX

    Top 10 Cities with Oldest Homeowners

    At the other end of the spectrum are the older homebuyers. It comes to no surprise that Florida —senior citizen and retiree haven— still has older homeowners than the other states. According to a report by Lending Tree, 7 out of the 10 metro areas are from Florida, with Pennsylvania and New York State taking the remaining slots. This should push these states’ real estate investors association to target seniors in their marketing agendas.

    Here is the list of the cities with high populations of the oldest homeowners:

    1. North Port, FL
    2. Cape Coral, FL
    3. Deltona, FL
    4. Palm Bay, FL
    5. Pittsburgh, PA
    6. Scranton, PA
    7. Tampa, FL
    8. Buffalo, NY
    9. Lakeland, FL
    10.  Allentown, PA

    Old is Still Gold

    Studies show that while marketing to young and middle-aged adults is very lucrative, it is imperative that real estate investors still make an effort to include seniors in their sales programs.

    Even in their twilight years, senior citizens’ housing preferences are still dictating the housing market’s future state, as revealed on the 2018 State of Nation’s Housing Report from Harvard University. In addition, 88 percent of seniors have an intention to remain at their own home.  This trend is expected to rise, increasing the growth rate of older rental and homeowners market.

    Age-Inclusive Property Marketing

    Appealing to every age group is vital to succeeding in the housing market. In doing so, make sure that you make the right steps and allow room for calculated risks. Let an established real estate investment association like CIREIA help you in this journey. Call us at 317-670-8491, and get started on your path to property marketing success!

    Single Homebuyer

    One of the concerns every real estate investors group should look into is the growth of the single homebuyer market. With the rise in homebuyers opting to purchase a home without a partner, the trends are changing drastically.

    One of the contributing factors to this trend is that young adults are putting off marriage to a later age. Marriage rates are declining, with just half of the American adults reported getting married in 2017.

    A study conducted by Pew Research in 2017 shows that around 42 percent of U.S. citizens reported not having a spouse or partner. As for individuals younger than 35 years, more than 60 percent lived solo. With more homebuyers opting to buy a home without a spouse or partner, homebuying patterns are shifting with the trend.

    Top 3 Cities for First-Time Single Homebuyers

    If you belong to a real estate investors association and are actively investing in houses catering to the single first-time homebuyers market, then these cities present the perfect opportunity for you to grow your business.

    A study identified the cities best suited for solo first-time homebuyers. The survey targeted all 311 U.S. towns and cities with populations of 100,000 or more. One of the criteria that were considered was the availability of one-bedroom homes in each city.

    Here are the top three cities for first-time single homebuyers:

    1. Edison, New Jersey

      Topping the survey is Edison, New Jersey. One bedroom homes in this city have a median price of $65,000. With a median monthly salary of $3,325.83, residents have a good chance of affording the monthly mortgage payment that is around $292 or 8.78 percent of their monthly salary.

    2. Overland Park, Kansas

      Next in the list is Overland Park. The median single-bedroom price is $70,000 with monthly mortgage payments of $315. This is under 9 percent of the monthly median income.

    3. Lafayette, Louisiana

      Coming in third is the deep southern city of Lafayette, LA. Lafayette residents who have a median monthly income of $2,534 are eligible for a median-priced one-bedroom home of $57,000. Monthly mortgage rates cost $256, or over 10% of their monthly income.

    Tap into the Single Homebuyer Market

    In light of these events in the real estate industry, it’s time for you to engage in the single homebuyer market seriously. Joining the right group of investors will certainly help you a lot.

    With CIREIA, you can get a foothold in the lucrative real estate industry! As your top real estate association, we can help you with both buying and selling a property, even in prime locations outside the state. Come join us now, and start your journey to real estate success!

    Learn about a new law that just passed the House on an 82-14 margin. The bill REQUIRES foreclosure actions in cases where a land contract buyer has paid just 5% equity into the property! This is a drastic change from the current 20% case law and will affect Thousands of Investors. Get invovled with your legislators. Indiana State REIA is fighting this too.
