Realtor.com recently released its latest report on home buying trends across generations. “For the first time,” said Javier Vivas, realtor.com’s director of economic research, “we’re finally seeing evidence of Millennials out competing older generations in more markets than not. If Millennials continue to grow (their market share) at this (current) pace, we expect them to buy more homes than Gen-Xers and Boomers combined.”

Markets dominated by Millennials in which they own 47% of the homes tend to be smaller and more affordable than in the country’s largest metros where Millennials own just 43% of the homes.

Markets dominated by Gen-Xers in which they own 39% of the homes tend to be larger, more urban and more expensive. In fact, realtor.com found that Gen-Xers spend nearly $50,000 more on their home purchase than Millennials. According to Bob Peterson with KellerWilliams in Memphis, “Gen-X buyers are move-up buyers, their families are growing and they’re getting out of apartments or smaller houses. They are (also) more concerned about schools…” and tend not to have patience for renovations. Turnkey, newer houses tend to be Gen-X type houses.
