Millennials and Boomers Renting– What Has Changed?

Millennials and Boomers Renting– What Has Changed?

millenials and boomersIt’s not current news that millennials feel economically challenged with student loan debt and/or the fact that their bills are higher than their pay. Due to the ever-changing job market and the ability to move geographical locations, a recent study published on Probuilder.com stated that millennials feel like they have to rent. Millennials like the convenience of city living, but they don’t feel confident enough to buy. The study also had an interesting reveal – boomers want to rent rather than own!

According to Probuilder.com and a March 2018 study of renters from Freddie Mac found that renters reported being in better financial shape renting rather than housing. The article states, “Baby Boomers are helping to drive up the desire to rent instead of own, with 35 percent saying they have no interest in owning a home. Three-quarters of millennials, on the other hand, are currently renting out of financial need than desire.”
