Out-of-towners prefer upscale areas

A new study1 offers an interesting peek into the search habits of today’s homebuyers. Take a look:
  • In expensive metro areas‚ out-of-town buyers research more upscale zip codes while local buyers hunt for bargains.
  • However‚ the opposite is the case in less expensive metros: locals aim for pricier areas; those searching from a distance look for low-cost options.
  • Lexington appears to be bucking the national trend: the median home value is $1‚027‚500; 70% of online searches are by locals.
As the #1 mortgage company in Greater Lexington for 17 consecutive years‚ Capstone Mortgage is here to provide guidance and support.
