New Survey Highlights Staggering Lack of Real Estate Literacy in America
Homie, a real estate technology company that has been changing the way homes are bought and sold since 2015, recently released the results of a survey polling 1,000 millennial Americans on topics related to real estate. The results of the survey highlight the extent to which the real estate industry has historically complicated the process, added unnecessary fees, and created confusion about the costs of homeownership. Millennials polled were largely unaware of many of the complexities involved in buying and selling real estate, underscoring the need for better transparency and education.
