According to a recent article on Yahoo Finance, Jason Dorsey, Millennials and Gen Z expert, says that Millennials are going to buy homes. “They’re just going to do it at a later age,” he says, adding that it’s often when they get married and have two incomes to put toward a down payment and monthly mortgage bills. “Millennials will buy houses when they can afford them.”
