For Week Ending February 23, 2019

Two years ago, Millennials (born between 1981 and 1996) passed older generational groups to account for the most new mortgages. Today, Millennials also account for the most total dollar amount of those mortgages. Given the state of ongoing median sales price increases in the majority of the country, this should not come as a surprise. And given the positive state of the U.S. economy, finding the correct balance between positive sales figures and sales prices will be a dominant theme of 2019.
