Top 10 Cities that are Millennial Magnets

Real Estate Broker/Owner with NextHome Antonelli Realty 3137972

The economic data team analyzed the 60 largest U.S. cities and how much millennials were checking out listings in those areas, compared with the national average, from August 2016 to February 2017.


"Buyers under 36 now make up the biggest chunk of Americans signing on the line: 34% of all home buyers, according to the National Association of Realtors®. And they make up 64% of first-time home buyers (even though they only account for 13% of the population)".


"As America’s largest and youngest adult generation", millennials are making a big impact on society. They are increasingly becoming homebuyers.  It is important to know where they are looking to buy. Millennials are shopping quickly and spending money on what they want.

I don't know how much longer Seattle will be a magnet for millenials. They are being priced out of the market, over-paying and many are having buyer's remorse. The surrounding communities will benefit soon in my opinion ;-)
