Millennial-Friendly Cities: What Are the Most Affordable Cities for the New Generation of Homeowners?

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Sep 8, 2014) - First-time homebuyers have been largely absent from the housing market in the current economic recovery, but some metropolitan areas -- particularly in the Midwest and West -- are well positioned to see increases in home-buying from the Millennial generation in upcoming years, according to newly released infographic by the National Association of Realtors®.

NAR analyzed current housing conditions, job creation and population trends in metropolitan statistical areas across the U.S. to determine the best markets for aspiring, leading edge Millennial homebuyers. Austin, Texas; Minneapolis; Denver; Seattle; and New Orleans were identified as top standouts for Millennials for having a young adult population with solid job growth rates and still relatively affordable home prices.
