For years, most people followed a similar path. Go to school. Get married. Buy a house. But for many millennials, that path no longer makes sense—and purchasing a home has moved up the priority list.

According to a recent survey from LendingTree, 24% of millennials want to purchase a home before they get married, and another 27% are putting off starting a family until after homeownership. In fact, 43% of all first-time homebuyers in the US are single!

The Takeaway

If you’re a millennial and homeownership is your top priority, you’re not alone. There are plenty of other millennials who are buying homes before getting married or starting a family. So if that’s your plan, don’t wait. Now is a great time to make a move and turn your dream of homeownership into a reality.
