The Importance of Marketing a Rental to Millennials and Generation Xers

The rental market is thriving these days and, according to recent data, it is closely tied to younger and more diverse generations. In the past year, millennials and generation Xers accounted for more than 70 percent of those seeking to rent homes; therefore, it is essential to have a strong marketing strategy in place that will target these two groups.

Noahs’ realizes the importance of speaking to younger generations when marketing rental properties. Taking the time to research market trends allows us to communicate with all generations effectively through our listings and in person. Our use of digital media and our established connections with top realtors throughout Montgomery County are just a couple of the ways in which we connect successfully with these generations. In fact, we are considered one of the top property management companies in Rockville, MD, and throughout the entire MoCo region.

Why Market to Millennials and Generations Xers?  

According to a study by The Brookings Institution, nearly 1/3 of the American population will be of the millennial generation by 2020. This shift in generations is having an impact on all areas of the economy, including the rental market. Here are some other facts that are impacting the rental market:

  • According to a report, many millennials delay life decisions that commonly precede buying a home, such as marriage or starting a family. Throughout their 20s and 30s, younger generations are deciding to stay in the rental market long-term.
  • According to one source, sixty percent of millennials choose to rent over purchasing a home.
  • Both of these generations are looking for the flexibility, convenience, and freedom of being able to move around when their lease is up.
  • Finally, affordability is a major reason these generations choose to rent. According to a survey, 57 percent of millennials ranked affordability at the top of their priority list as a reason to rent.
