Salt Lake City Tops List of Best Cities for Millennials

 

PRESS RELEASES , REAL ESTATE , WASATCH FRONTPress Release Mar 22, 2017

Salt Lake City—Realtor.com, a leading online real estate destination operated by News Corp subsidiary Move, Inc., announced Wednesday realtor.com’s Top Cities for Millennials. Led by Salt Lake City, the list includes some of the usual millennial hot spots – Seattle and Los Angeles – along with a few surprises such as Buffalo, N.Y. and Albany, N.Y.

In rank order, realtor.com®’s Top Cities for Millennials include: Salt Lake City, Miami, Orlando, Fla., Seattle, Houston, Los Angeles, Buffalo, Albany, San Francisco, and San Jose, Calif.

“High job growth in markets such as Orlando, Seattle, and Miami, and the power of affordability in places like Albany and Buffalo are making these markets magnets for millennials.” said Javier Vivas, manager of economic research for realtor.com®. “But what really stands out is that all these markets already have large numbers of millennials, which translates into strong populations of millennial home buyers.”

The average share of the 25-34 year old population in the U.S. is 13 percent, but in these top markets, the average share is 14 percent. Salt Lake City, No. 1 on the list, happens to also have the highest share of millennials, comprising 15.8 percent of its total population. Seattle is close behind with a millennial population at 15.2 percent, Los Angeles and San Francisco tie for third with 15.0 percent.

Economic growth and relative affordability make these markets really attractive to first-time home buyers. Salt Lake City has the lowest unemployment rate of all the markets on the list at 2.9 percent, which is well below the national unemployment rate of 4.7 percent. The job market is also a factor in San Francisco and San Jose, with the unemployment rate at 3.7 percent. When it comes to affordability, Buffalo is No. 1 with the most affordable home prices relative to salary, at 22.7 percent. It’s followed by Albany where people only use 27.3 percent of their income on a home and Salt Lake City where buyers use 30 percent.

Realtor.com® analyzed the 60 largest markets in the U.S. and compared the share of millennial page views in each area to the national average. Markets were ranked based on their comparison to the national average. Page view data included in this analysis covers the period from August 2016 to February 2017.
