An open floor plan. Open living room, dining room, and kitchen areas are highly desirable among younger buyers. Formal dining rooms are out and spacious hangout areas are in.

Low maintenance. The new generation of home buyers values convenience. Dishwashers, high-end washers and dryer, and wood floors can be a strong selling point.

Efficient. The advances in technology and energy have created a wish list among millennials. Look into what technological features you can add to your home and make sure you have a great Wi-Fi connection when your realtor is showing your home. Visitors will notice.

Images. Computers have changed the way home are seen for the first time. Now, the first impression is made online. Make sure your home has amazing images and an online presence.
