Building Homes for the Future: What Millennials Look for in a New Home



At Maronda Homes, we understand that each generation has unique preferences when finding the perfect place to call home. Born between 1981 and 1996, millennials are currently the largest generation in the United States, and their priorities and values profoundly shape the housing market.

Let’s explore what they look for in a new home and how we are committed to meeting their needs:

1. Affordability and Value

Millennials came of age during the Great Recession, and many carry the lessons of financial caution into their home-buying decisions. Affordability is a top priority for this generation. They want to ensure that their home purchase is a sound investment and that it won’t lead to excessive financial strain.

At Maronda Homes, we offer a range of affordable housing options without compromising on quality. Our homes are built to be energy-efficient, saving millennials money on utility bills over time. Our transparent pricing and incentive-based financing options make it easier for millennials to budget for their new home.

2. Location, Location, Location

Millennials value location more than ever before. They seek conveniently located homes to their workplaces, entertainment options, and amenities. Proximity to public transportation and walkability are also essential considerations for this generation, as many prefer reducing their reliance on cars.

At Maronda Homes, we carefully select the locations of our communities, ensuring they are situated near schools, shopping centers, parks, and transportation hubs. We understand that the right location is critical to our millennial homebuyers.

3. Flexible Living Spaces

Millennials have diverse lifestyles and needs, which is reflected in their preference for flexible living spaces. They often prioritize open floor plans, allowing easy customization and adaptation of their living areas. Many millennials seek homes with dedicated spaces for remote work, exercise, or hobbies.

Our home designs at Maronda Homes incorporate open layouts and customization options. We understand that flexibility is key to meeting the varied lifestyles of millennial homeowners.

4. Technology Integration

As the first generation to grow up with the internet, millennials are tech-savvy and expect their homes to keep up with their digital lifestyles. Smart home technology, energy-efficient appliances, and high-speed internet access are all essential features for this demographic.

Maronda Homes integrates cutting-edge technology into our homes, allowing millennials to control their lighting, security, and HVAC systems from their smartphones. We understand that technology is a luxury and a necessity for modern living.

5. Sustainability and Green Living
