Young home buyers are more comfortable texting than talking, which means big changes for Real Estate Agents and Lenders.
For decades, the telephone has been the real estate agent’s tool of the trade, but a new wave of younger home buyers is changing the way agents use those phones. Millennials, those born between 1980 and the late ‘90s, don’t want to talk. They want texts. “We’re on our phones all the time and this generation does not like to pick up the phone,” says Dave Almazan, Branch Manager at Ditech in Tustin. “They don’t want to bother with a conversation if it can be texted.”
“Mobile traffic to apps has outpaced traffic to our desktop site dramatically,” says Jim Forde, “Folks first go to their iPhones and their iPads.” Dealing with these tech-savvy buyers has posed a challenge for the nation’s real estate Agents who are considerably older than the home buying population they serve.
