If you're a Denver homeowner who's been wondering where the next generation of homebuyers will come from, look no further than the "Millennials." Born between 1979 and 1991, these young adults came of age during the new millennium and are now starting to think about buying a home. According to a recent study from Wells Fargo, this generation represents some 51.5 million potential first-time homebuyers! What better place is there to begin the next phase of their lives than right here in beautiful Denver?
Like most generations, the Millennials share certain characteristics that set them apart from their predecessors. They're confident, self-expressive, upbeat, educated and technologically savvy. Their entry into careers and first jobs might have been set back by the economy, but they remain upbeat and optimistic about their economic futures. In fact, the Wells Fargo survey said they still want to own a home despite the possibility that they might have to meet more rigorous credit requirements. Once they buy, they plan on staying in their new homes for quite some time.
