Millennials Are Buying Homes Because of Their Dogs – Not Their Children or Marriages
It’s no secret that millennials love dogs and now their four-legged friends are starting to influence the decisions they make about housing.
A recent survey by SunTrust Mortgage found that a third of millennials who had already purchased their first home said they were influenced by the need to have space for a dog.
The survey asked recent home buyers why they were buying their first home and their dog was the third most commonly cited reason, coming above children and marriage. Only more living space and the opportunity to build equity came above the furry companions.
