Jun 26, 2015
Millennials are primed to gain market share in the second half of the year as more decide to take the plunge into homeownership, according to a consumer behavior survey conducted by realtor.com. 
 
Jonathan Smoke, realtor.com chief economist, said this year they are seeing an increase in millennial demand that points to a strengthening first-time buyer demographic. As the economy continues to grow over the next few years, first-time buyers are expected to return to a healthy level of 40 percent of the market, adding approximately 15 percent to the number of total homes sold.
