Milennials Want To Buy Their First House For Their Dogs Not Their Babies

August 8, 2017 in Daily Bulletin

Liz Donovan wrote about millennial home purchase habits:

  • A survey found that 33% of millennials were motivated to buy their first home to give their dog more living space.
  • This beat out both marriage (25%) and even becoming a parent (19%) as motivators.
  • 36% buy one to build equity in their home – not bad for a generation typically dismissed as financially illiterate.
  • The biggest motivator to buy a new home? 66% say it’s to have more living space for themselves.
