A recent survey by the PulteGroup discovered that 60% of renters see themselves buying a home within the next two years!

And if their parents are Baby Boomers, they may even get a hand with the down payment!  A second study by Meredith Research Solutions for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate learned that almost 2/3 of Baby Boomers want to help their kids out financially with the downpayment.

Why would they help fund such a large purchase? When asked, 75% said they believe homeownership is a good financial investment, and 58% believe it’s an essential part of the American Dream!

View additional housing trends in our latest infographic, which displays these facts and figures in a highly visual, easy-to-follow graphic. The infographic also includes a look ahead at what types of homes may be popular in the near future, thanks, in part, to the aging of these generous Baby Boomer parents!
