Fordham Conversations: Tracking the Trends of Young Homeowners
Audio icon
Young people are still buying homes, but they're waiting until they're older.

This week, Fordham Conversations is about housing and how people from different generations go about buying a house. It turns out Baby Boomers have different attitudes towards home ownership than Millennials (the generation born between 1980 and 2000), and they’re buying different types of houses. Jessica Lautz, director of member and consumer research at the National Association of Realtors, talks about a buyer and seller generational trends. Then, Fordham Professor Emily Rosenbaum explains why some people are waiting until they are older to own a home and how this compares to previous generations.

Music on the show in order of appearance:

If I Had a Million Dollars - Barenaked Ladies
Burning Down the House – Talking Heads
Our House – Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young
