A third of participants in a survey conducted by Reveal Marketing Research say they would like to buy a home, and most of them are looking to buy a house, informs a press release sent on Tuesday .
After a period in which most young people spent more than 90% of their time at home, and the concept of Work From Home became a desideratum, Reveal Marketing Research conducted a study on the intention to purchase a home (house or apartment) among young people aged between 25 and 34: are they planning on buying their own home?
Romania is the country with the most homeowners of all European Union countries. According to Eurostat, over 95% of Romanians own their own home.
According to the new national survey conducted by Reveal Marketing Research, 34% of respondents say they want to buy a home. The percentage of respondents who want to buy a house (33%) is double that of those who say they want an apartment (15%), especially among people up to 45 years old.
Young people aged between 18 and 34 say they plan to buy their own home this year, although 6 out of 10 believe Romania's real estate market will grow in 2021.
The Reveal Marketing Research study also shows that 30% of young people between the ages of 18 and 34 say they intend to buy a house, while 16% say they would choose to buy an apartment.
For respondents over 45 years maintenance costs (86%) and community/neighbors (72%) are more important while among the important details that young people take into account when they want to become homeowners are the quality of the masonry materials used (86%), the age of the building (84%) and the distance from work (72%).
If we analyze the category of people who have built or are in the process of building a house, 5 out of 10 declare that the masonry material from which they built/are building the house is aerated concrete (AAC). This happens mainly among those aged between 18 and 24 (60%), but also among the 45-54 age group (57%). 4 out of 10 respondents choose AAC because it is modern/innovative and because it is a known, popular material (31%).
30% of respondents choose brick because it is a safe material, and wood is chosen by 8% of respondents, the latter being perceived as a healthy and traditional material on the market (23%).
