More than 90% of young adult plan to buy a home

Young adults between the ages of 18-34 will be a major percentage of all buyers purchasing a home in 2013, a new study by Trulia reveals.

  • § 43% are already homeowners
  • § 93% that currently rent plan to purchase a home
  • § 72% say homeownership is part of their personal American Dream

Jed Kolko, Trulia’s Chief Economist, explained:

“Millennials have been shaken, not scarred by the housing bust. Nearly all of them want to own a home someday, if they’re not homeowners already. But many of them think today’s low prices and low mortgage rates will last. They may be in for sticker shock if the cost of homeownership has returned to normal levels by the time they’re ready to buy.”

If you are a young adult waiting to buy, you must realize that the price of a home and the cost of a mortgage are both projected to increase in the next 12 months.
