Millennial Buyers - Selling a Home - Wright-Patt Realty

If you're thinking about selling your home soon, you'll definitely want to keep the millennial homebuyer in mind. Although this generation wasn't a major player in the real estate market in past years, research shows that there's been an uptick in millennials buying their first homes. 

Our REALTORS® have recently helped many millennials find the perfect Beavercreek homes for sale. What we've noticed is that the features that are important to these homebuyers are different than what other generations were looking for. Before you make any changes or upgrades to your home, take a look at these five desirable features, and three you really should skip. 

  1. A Nice-Sized Yard
    If you're thinking about a home addition that creeps into yard space, you might want to reconsider. Surprisingly enough, the number one feature millennials want in a home is a nice-sized yard. Having enough room to add a garden and plenty of space for future kids to play were some of the reasons cited in research surveys. Millennials in general value the lifestyle that having outdoor space affords them. They also realize that you can always update the interior of a home, but you're stuck with your yard for life.

Giving Tuesday - Wright-Patt Realty

The holidays are right around the corner! With all the hustle and bustle, sometimes it's easy to forget what the season is really all about. After the craziness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, our REALTORS® love taking a break from all the commercialism by taking part in Giving Tuesday

This global movement was created to encourage giving back to the nonprofit organizations that work so hard to help those in need. If you've been looking at Beavercreek homes for sale, now is a great time to get to know more about your community. Whether you decide to donate, volunteer, or just make yourself more aware of the resources available to local residents, this round-up of our favorite area charities will help you get started. 

  • Ellie's Rainy Day Fund: P.O. Box #340013 Beavercreek, OH 45434
    The mission of Ellie's Rainy Day Fund is to preserve the bond between families and their sick pets. They do this by helping pet owners with the financial support they need to care for their medically-challenged furry friends. Not only is this a worthy cause, but you can feel great about donating to this charity. One-hundred percent of the donations they receive go toward supporting their mission instead of being used to cover overhead costs.

VA Loans 101 - Wright-Patt Realty

For many Americans, saving 20% for a down payment on a home, much less a down payment at all, can be a struggle. Fortunately, as an active or former member of the United States military, you have certain privileges when it comes to getting a home loan. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs sponsors one of the most coveted mortgage products for military members in the form of the VA loan.  

Our REALTORS® have worked with countless active military members, veterans, and their families to help find solutions for them to realize the dream of homeownership.  Here's everything you need to know about VA loans.

  • No Down Payment
    Probably one of the most attractive attributes of VA loans is the fact that no down payment is required. Most conventional loans require a 5% down payment with 20% needed to avoid private mortgage insurance (PMI). Most Americans have a hard enough time cobbling together 5% down, and many won't reach the 20% threshold until they've paid as much in equity. Fortunately for veterans, there is no down payment required for a VA loan, meaning you can finance 100% of the purchase price of your home.
