Wave of Millennials is a Major Opportunity for US Housing Market

Taylor Morrison Home CEO Sheryl Palmer sees a major opportunity for the U.S. housing market over the next decade as more millennials hit prime homebuying age.


Nearly 45 million Americans will reach the general age of first-time homebuyers in the next 10 years, 3.1 million more than in the 10 years prior, according to a recent analysis by Zillow.


But fewer of them can afford to buy a home. The homeownership rate among millennials is about 8% lower than previous generations at their age.


“We have a huge wave coming at us over the next 5-10 years. It’s one of the reasons I’m so bullish,” Palmer told CNBC’s Diana Olick at the network’s Capital Exchange forum in Washington, D.C., on Thursday.


Nearly 45 million Americans will reach the general age of first-time homebuyers in the next 10 years, 3.1 million more than in the 10 years prior, according to a recent analysis by Zillow.

There’s just one catch: Fewer millennials can afford to buy a home. The homeownership rate among millennials is about 8% lower than previous generations at the same age, according to the Urban Institute, which noted factors such as delayed marriage, student loan debt and higher urban living prices holding them back.


Additionally, over the last five years, prices for starter homes have increased 57%, while inventory is down 23%, according to Zillow.


“I am excited because the demographics are with us. Now we have to figure out how to build [new homes] ... at the right price,” Palmer said.


David M. Brickman, president and incoming CEO of Freddie Mac, said there needs to be a great supply of new homes at lower price points.


Casablanca Homes' collection of homes start at the high $200s. Casablanca Homes has been building quality Tru-Performance homes in Southwest Florida since 2001.
