Millennial home buying trends have been the subject of much industry scrutiny in recent years. Some claim that the touted urban lifestyle is but a passing phase, that it will lose its allure, and that millennials will follow the steps of their parents and move to the suburbs when the time comes to start a family. Others speculate that co-living and sharing housing became the norm for so many young people that it disrupted the very idea of homeownership, with people increasingly delaying buying into their thirties.
