Surprise! Millennials Love Life in the ‘Burbs

Conventional knowledge tells us that the Millennial generation wants to be in cities above all else. As I’ve written about before, Millennials are a complex customer group that has often been said to shirk conventional lifestyles and shrug off the American Dream. And yet, new research and a series of surprising articles are making the case for a deep-seated desire among Millennials to settle down where their parents’ generation did – in the suburbs of large cities.

For homebuilders, this is big news. Millennials with enhanced buying power are typically college-educated, starting young families and gaining career momentum. This translates to homebuying readiness. The army of 23-38-year-old Americans is choosing to settle down in suburban environments that position them near enough to cities, but likely also to afford the comforts and privacy of a semi-secluded life.

When it comes to reaching Millennials, stand-out marketing goes a long way. This crowd is native to social media and seeks honest, thoughtful content across channels. Creating a new home in an unfamiliar place is an emotional topic and requires a sensitive eye to detail and careful play on trends, themes, and stories that will resonate.
