Newsflash: Young People Love Old Houses

“I think millennials are definitely interested in being their own people, in being individuals and carving their own path. Your home is the ultimate expression of that.”
 
Recently, the National Association of Realtors released data proving what I’ve suspected for a long time: the younger the buyer, the older the house they are buying. It makes sense, doesn’t it? Nothing speaks to a millennial more than something totally one-of-a-kind!
 
I was thrilled to be quoted in a fantastic piece by Movement Mortgage analyzing this trend. Enjoy!
