DO MILLENNIALS (18-34 YEARS OLD) WANT TO OWN A HOME?
30% of Millennials live at home with their parents.
HAHA... Everyone likes to save money but I don't think the 30% of18-34 year olds are loving living with mom and dad to do it though. I think the main reason for this is the discouraging reality that many are graduating college making the same or less than you can make at Costco but you have 100 grand in student loans to pay back. But that is a blog for another time.
This Millennial generation is actually PRO Home Ownership but these stats show that Millennials are backed into a corner economically. THE GOOD NEWS...There is a way out if you will learn the rules of buying and selling the largest investment most people ever come across... Their Homes. At the end of this article I show 6 Ways To Buy a Home way before you ever thought you could.
*To see the charts better on a cell phone turn your phone sideways...
*It's the 18-30 year olds who still believe in the "American Dream" of owning a home!
*Renting cost more per month than a house payment.No wonder Millennials are living at home!Rent is at a record high in proportion to household incomes. Green is how much higher rent is than what is considered "Affordable".
*Record high stats show 32% ofvthe Millennial Generation living in their parents houses. In Utah we have basement apartments that are very accommodating. THIS IS GOOD FOR OUR NEAR FUTURE REAL ESTATE MARKET! They are saving money up for down payments for their own homes. The 2 charts below estimate a major upswing in number of homes sold in the upcoming years.
*People are buying their first home later in life. THE PROBLEM FOR MILLENNIALS is that incomes compared to real esate prices haven't changed! Prices are up over 30 years of inflation and incomes didn't go up at all! Note, the chart shows prices and incomes in the 1970's in todays dollars adjusted for inflation.
*So consequently... First Time Buyers Are Older and they are buying more condos because they are cheaper and within their financial reach.
*What I wish 18-30 year olds knew to help buy smart and within their financial reach.

"A few things to note about Devin. He was the seller's agent for a property we were looking at (one we did not ultimately end up purchasing). He offered to serve as buyer's agent for us.
He was knowledgeable about the property we were initially looking at, including an understanding of the property's history and use. In large part due to his enthusiasm (without being pushy) and a real passion for understanding property, we accepted his offer.
Ultimately, Devin showed us a dozen or so homes; we settled on a house in Alpine, for which we were able to pay much less than we were expecting.
Overall, I was pleased with Devin's honest, low-pressure approach to real estate. Unlike some real estate brokers and agents we dealt with, he was always knowledgeable, and treated his work as a professional (not as a sideline or money-grab). I've referred several family members to Devin, and will work with him again when we acquire our next property"
