Austin Among Hottest Housing Markets for Millennials, Gen X and Baby Boomers
March 14, 2018
Austin isn’t just a hot spot among Millennial homebuyers. A new study by Realtor.com finds Austin ranks in the top 10 hottest housing markets for three generations: Millennials, Gen Xers and Baby Boomers! The study shows that while each generation has different needs, Austin checks off many boxes for homebuyers at any stage in life.
Realtor.com found Millennials are flocking to many of the country’s buzziest tech hubs, and Austin certainly fits the bill. The study also finds Millennials are more prone to move for a particular lifestyle or job over living closer to home like previous generations.
The top 10 metros for Generation X were all located in Texas, with Austin falling in the No. 6 ranking. Realtor.com’s polling found Gen Xers want bigger paychecks, bigger homes and great schools for their kids.
Austin also ranks No. 6 among hottest markets for Baby Boomers, who are typically looking to downsize into homes that require little maintenance without breaking the bank. Austin was the only city in Texas to rank for this generation.
