Millennials to gain market share in the second half of 2015

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.
