Why Millennials are not buying homes

By
From page HS3 | March 21, 2014 |

This spring will reveal the direction of the real estate market for the balance of the year. That’s good because January and February sales haven’t been so great. January’s sales were less than a year ago and the median selling price declined 11 percent from December. February’s home sales were off 18 percent from last year same month and the median selling price declined 15 percent. If sales and prices rebound in March and April we can expect continued improvement over 2013 but if they continue to slide, 2013 will go down as a small bubble that has already evaporated.
