well, if you can't make it then.....I say move along to your next destination. It's a competitive world and if that's not your thing or you don't have the skill sets ---- unfortunately that's just how things go.
Right. Because everybody enjoys the exact same cities and values the exact same type of lifestyle that you do.

Honestly, I think there's wayyyy too much millennial hype on this forum. They are just the youngest generation with money, that has a name. All generations were there at one time, then their glory was "stolen" by the next money-making generation. Unless you are a Millennial, why do people care so much? They're just young people, just or recently out of college, getting a start. What's the fascination???? I'm a Baby Boomer, and where Millennials choose to live, matters not, to me. When they get married, matters not. Seriously, people.

I think black/hispanic millennials are different than white millennials, in that they prefer spacious affordable areas like Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, NC, Texas. While millennials prefer more build-up cities with high densities and "trendy" atmosphere (or what they think is trendy for a hipster), which is causing gentrification in some cities
Noone said all millenials.... we're talking about stats and %'s of segments. No need to patronize how all millenials are different. We know every person of every race, age group etc are different but we can take %'s and track general trends in behaviours.

This just in: As Millennials Get Older, Many Are Buying SUVs To Drive To Their Suburban Homes : NPR

My allowable three: "Just a few years ago, many car dealers and homebuilders were worried that millennials would forever want to be urban hipsters, uninterested in buying cars or homes.

But now, as millennials get older and richer more of them are buying SUVs to drive to their suburban homes.

The National Association of Realtors' 2017 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends study found that millennials were the largest group of homebuyers for the fourth consecutive year."


Plus much more.

It's not that people my age don't want homes or cars, its just that many of us can't afford it. Millennials are also the biggest generation to date (just barely surpassing Baby Boomers or equal in population), with the most amount of debt to date (thanks college). So it makes sense Millennials are still the biggest population buying homes. Now there are more Millennials alive than Baby Boomers.

If I could have an SUV and a house in the suburbs right now (I'm born in the youngest years of the millennials, so I'm straddling generation Z) I'd take it. But I doubt I could get a down payment any time soon. Older millennials who were born in the 80s are probably buying up homes right now. But as a mid-90s baby, I'm quite different than those Millennials. The youngest of millennials are just graduating college right now.

I think there's a big divide between Millennials born in the 90s and the ones born in the 80s. So we aren't a hive mind. But there should be a distinction between the ones in the 80s, who are in their 30s now, and the youngest ones who are still in their early 20s.

I was reading somewhere that they are breaking up the upper bracket of Millenials to Xinneals.

1. We've been hearing for years that Millennials are just, well, different! They don't want these materialistic things that their Boomer parents wanted. Now the tune is changing?

2. As is true of any big "generation". The Boomers encompass 18 years, from born in 1946 to 1964. Yes, there are differences in older and younger Boomers due to age. Same with Millennials.
