CHICAGO, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury Portfolio International®, the luxury face of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and research partner YouGov have released a new report delving into the mindset of millionaire homebuyers: The Affluent Homebuyer: A Quest For Meaning. The data from YouGov Affluent Perspective, a global survey of wealthy consumers, shows that while all luxury buyers seek trust, craftsmanship and impeccable service, buyers at different price points have specific needs.
While luxury homebuyers are discerning when it comes to their purchases, a review of three tiers of luxury buyers shows that there are striking differences. The first tier, Practical Explorers, buyers in the $1-$2 Million range, seek trusted experiences and 80 percent prefer to work with a real estate agent on their transactions.
At tier two are the Meaning Seekers, buyers in the $2-$5 Million range, are luxury lovers who proudly assert that once you experience true luxury, it's hard to scale back (71 percent). These committed luxury consumers also value sustainability (74 percent) and want their purchases to mean something.
The Power Players, those at the highest level, in the $5 Million and above range acquire the finest, most premier properties and are willing to pay to get them. In this echelon, 83 percent of those surveyed say that they choose the best and expect the price to reflect this. They are motivated by a desire to have it all and want to feel confident that what they have purchased is unrivaled excellence.
"For today's real estate agent, it's critical to understand the mindset of the affluent consumer," said Paul Boomsma, President of Luxury Portfolio International®. "The research shows it's clear that not all consumers are the same and part of speaking their language is understanding their deepest motivations."
