Summer Focus for the Luxury Home Marketing Group: Millennials in the Marketplace and Construction/Renovation

Raleigh, NC, September 05, 2014 --( The Raleigh-based Luxury Home Marketing Group examined two growing areas of the Estate Home marketplace during summer sessions: Members of the Millennial generation entering the marketplace, and providing for construction and renovation needs in lending.

“Millennials are people born between 1980 and 1995, just following the so-called Generation X,” said LHMG President Linda Craft. “With our exclusive marketing partner, Towne Mortgage of the Carolinas (NMLS #214800, an Equal Housing Lender), we reviewed data about this growing group of home-buyers how their home ownership needs vary from previous generations as they move into the Luxury Home market.”

Towne Mortgage’s Denise Beatty presented data from the National Association of Realtors indicating that Millennials represent the largest percentage of home buyers, overall, and a small but growing number of home sellers. Towne Mortgage of the Carolina’s Chris Whitaker also presented details of how construction-to-permanent loans and renovation loans can work well with Estate Home buyers.
