Millennials Prefer Value Home Investments Versus Affordability, QuoteWizard Study Finds

SEATTLE, Sept. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — QuoteWizard®, a LendingTree company, and one of the nation’s leading online insurance marketplaces released a report on states where millennials are buying more homes. When comparing homeownership rates over the six-year period, QuoteWizard found that nearly half of all states saw some growth in millennial ownership, whereas the other half saw a decline.

The biggest correlating factor QuoteWizard found to reflect millennial homeownership growth is a differential type of metric that signals the quality of home investment. This differential of home value and mortgage balance in each state can be viewed as a value metric that shows a willingness to incur mortgage debt for a value investment in a home. The differential in home value and mortgage balance metric showed a strong correlation in the top growing states for millennial homeownership.
