What’s in a Buyer’s Name? Apparently a Lot

January 9, 2018

You should be chasing the buyers named Dylan, Chelsea, Austin, Alexandra, and Taylor. Those were the first names of millennials who were most likely to buy a home in 2017, according to a new analysis of more than 4 million home sales by ATTOM Data Solutions, a real estate data firm. 

On the other hand, Generation X and older buyers with the first names Gerald, Kristin, Stanley, Kurt, and Jaime had the biggest decreases in home sales last year. 

Not surprisingly, the most popular first names for home buyers varies quite a bit by state. See the most popular first name of a buyer in your state.
