Millennial Buyer?

5 markets where millennials won’t be buying in 2016
 

We also identified five out of the 100 largest markets that millennial buyers will probably shun in 2016. In these five places, the number of mortgages purchased in 2015 by 25- to 34-year-olds was below average, and relatively few members of that age group were looking at listings on realtor.com. In addition, these five markets have no growth forecasted for next year—and younger buyers are driving much of the growth in real estate, according to our forecast.
