Who Is Gen Z?

Generation Z (Gen Z) includes people born between 1995 and 2010. In 2018, Generation Z already accounted for about 21 percent of the U.S. population—64 million people—and by 2020, this group is expected to outnumber millennials by nearly 1 million people, according to the U.S. Census! So, it’s no surprise that Generation Z is already impacting the housing market.  Though the majority of Gen Z’s members still live at home with their parents, they still have dreams of becoming homeowners. A National Association of REALTORS® study found that Gen Z wants to buy houses.  Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate found that 97 percent of Generation Z believe that they will own a home in the future, and 82 percent indicate that homeownership is the most important factor in achieving the American dream.

Will Your Home Appeal To Gen Z?

A Gen Z home buyer wants to work with an agent. When asked about whether or not they would work with a real estate professional when they purchase a home, Generation Z’s answer was a resounding yes. According to BGHRE, 81 percent of Gen Zers believe they will work with a real estate agent during the home purchase process. Even though they will most likely begin their search online, Gen Zers believe that it is important to have a professional at their side.

Gen Z is connected. Gen Z was born into a connected, internet-ready era, and they don’t remember a time before smartphones, apps, and social media. Gen Z is mobile-first and expects brands to be as well. Its members keep close-knit social media circles, and 73 percent say texting or chatting is their primary mobile activity, according to a report from the IBM Institute for Business Value.

Gen Z wants to live near work. The oldest members of Generation Z choose proximity to work over living in the most desirable neighborhoods. According to the National Apartment Association, they may also seek out co-working spaces or maker’s rooms, as this generation is coming of age in the gig economy where entrepreneurship is high.
