According to Realtor.com, 2016 is anticipated to see Pittsburgh as the second most sought after real estate for millennials. This prediction was based on millennial population, employment growth and housing affordability.
Pittsburgh does not have one the nation’s largest population of those aged 25 to 34. In fact, only 12 percent of the region’s population represents that age group and that percentage is slightly less than the national average. However, job growth and lower housing costs make Pittsburgh exceptionally attractive.
According to Jonathan Smoke, Realtor.com’s chief economist, “The market ranked third out of the 100 largest markets for the 25-34 share of purchase mortgages in 2015, with 47 percent compared to the U.S. average of 36 percent.”
