Millennial’s Are in The Market for Fixer Uppers
A growing segment of the millennial generation have determined that many life milestones must be placed on hold until they have purchased a home; approximately 25% of them to be specific. It makes sense, as most people want stability when raising a family, and a house is the epitome of “stable.” 4 in 10 millennials who purchased a home are single, and 8 in 10 are in significant debt.
First time home purchasers tend to be strapped for cash and are looking for homes between $150k and $300k to get started; thus nearly 9 in 10 millennials expressed a desire to purchase a “fixer upper.” Significantly, less than 2 in 10 millennials have a credit score of very good or exceptional (740+) [this number jumps to 4 in 10 for actual millennial homeowners though, so don’t worry]. Ultimately, owners of homes that won’t sell for much and could use work should find this news exciting, and there appears to be a growing market for those types of properties.
