Your new neighbor in the 'burbs? A millennial. Yes, really
Wednesday, 9 Mar 2016
It was only a matter of time. Literally. As millennials grow older, get married, have children, they are seeking out bigger houses and better schools. That means the suburbs. They are also getting tired of paying higher urban rents and watching those rents rise.
Home prices have been rising more aggressively in the last six months. Bank of America just upped its forecast for prices this year, citing, "recent momentum, low interest rates and lean housing supply." Rents have also been rising, but they have steadied of late at near record highs.

An abnormally high number of them therefore never moved out of their parents' homes. Millennials are also marrying later in life, keeping them with their parents longer.Immigration is another driver. In Asian and Hispanic cultures, multigenerational living is usually the rule. As these immigrants move to the U.S. in greater numbers, they bring the trend along with them.Then there are retiring baby boomers. The largest generation is downsizing. Some are choosing active adult communities, but a significant number are choosing to move in with their adult children. With more dual income households, help from live-in grandparents is often a necessity.Read More---Home Buyers Be on top of your game--- ask questionsCall Harvey--- 845-876-3502

Monday, 1 Feb 2016
