No McMansions for Millennials – Yahoo! Real Estate- RealtyGo

Here’s what Generation Y doesn’t want: formal living rooms, soaker bathtubs, dependence on a car.

In other words, they don’t want their parents’ homes.

Much of this week’s National Association of Home Builders conference has dwelled on the housing needs of an aging baby boomer population. But their children actually represent an even larger demographic. An estimated 80 million people comprise the category known as “Gen Y,” youth born roughly between 1980 and the early 2000s. The boomers, meanwhile, boast 76 million.

How to Sell Your HOme

Gen Y housing preferences are the subject of at least two panels at this week’s convention. A key finding: They want to walk everywhere. Surveys show that 13% carpool to work, while 7% walk, said Melina Duggal, a principal with Orlando-based real estate adviser RCLCO. A whopping 88% want to be in an urban setting, but since cities themselves can be so expensive, places with shopping, dining and transit such as Bethesda and Arlington in the Washington suburbs will do just fine.

“One-third are willing to pay for the ability to walk,” Ms. Duggal said. “They don’t want to be in a cookie-cutter type of development. …The suburbs will need to evolve to be attractive to Gen Y.”

Outdoor space is important-but please, just a place to put the grill and have some friends over. Lawn-mowing not desired. Amenities such as fitness centers, game rooms and party rooms are important (“Is the room big enough to host a baby shower?” a millennial might think). “Outdoor fire pits,” suggested Tony Weremeichik of Canin Associates, an architecture firm in Orlando. “Consider designing outdoor spaces as if they were living rooms.”

Smaller rooms and fewer cavernous hallways to get everywhere, a bigger shower stall and skip the tub, he said. Oh, but don’t forget space in front of the television for the Wii, and space to eat meals while glued to the tube, because dinner parties and families gathered around the table are so last-Gen. And maybe a little nook in the laundry room for Rover’s bed?

In his presentation, KTGY Group residential designer David Senden showed slide after slide of dwellings that looked like a cross between a hotel lobby and the set of “Melrose Place.”

He christened the subset of the generation delaying marriage and family as “dawdlers.”

“A house in the suburbs is not for them,” Mr. Senden said. “At least not yet.”

Places to congregate are more important than a big apartment, he cautioned. He showed one layout of a studio apartment-350 square feet, as big as Mom and Dad’s Great Room. Common space has migrated to “club rooms,” he said, where Gen-Y residents can host meals and hang out before heading to a common movie-screening room or rooftop swimming pool that they share with the building’s other tenants.

The Great Recession and its effects on young people’s wages will affect how much home they can buy or rent for years to come.

“Not too many college grads can afford a lot of space in the city,” he said. “Think lots of amenities with little tiny units-and a lot of them to keep (fees) down. …The things these places are doing is constantly coordinating activities. The residents get to know each other and it makes for a much livelier and friendlier environment.”

Speculations climb, will At&t loose its Exclusivity to the iPhone early this year..?

RealtyGo.co information page

Is it time to make room for other carriers and the ever so popular iPhone.  Speculations climb about At&t possibly having to share the spot light with the once exclusive iPhone! Now with Verizon chiming in and offering their version of the iPad..; is this a sign of what’s coming – for all carriers to cash in on the ever so poplar “Apple Gear”

AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) currently has 7 million mobile broadband subscribers on usage-based data pricing plans, and the company considers its transition to the new pricing structure a success six months after its unveiled the changes, AT&T CFO Rick Lindner said.

Lindner said some first-time smartphone buyers selected the company’s $15 price point, which provides 200 MB of data per month, but that the “vast majority” of subscribers who have usage-based plans are on the high-tier 2 GB of data for $25 per month.

Speaking at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, Lindner said the carrier’s elimination of unlimited data pricing plans has been a success for both customers and the company, and that AT&T has not seen a significant drop in average revenue per user as a result of the change. AT&T’s postpaid average revenue per subscriber was $62.84 in the third quarter, up from $62.63 in the second quarter and up from $61.61 in third quarter of 2009. The carrier counted 33.5 million postpaid integrated devices in its base of 92.8 million total connections at the end of the third quarter.

The new plans give AT&T greater flexibility as applications and services evolve, Lindner said. “It gives us a model where we can increase data usage and data revenues with that usage over time, and add additional tiers over time as warranted,” he said.

In the months following AT&T’s introduction of tiered pricing, both Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) and T-Mobile USA have launched similar offerings.

Lindner also addressed continued speculation that AT&T will lose its exclusive right to carry Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone early next year. He said that even in the midst of all of the speculation, AT&T recorded record iPhone activations in the third quarter. He said the company will continue to diversify its smartphone lineup as well as evolve its wireless radio networks.
