It's evident that with the rise of the Millennials that people striving to buy a home to live in is on a decline and people looking to rent is increasing. But I'm curious which 10-20 cities appear to be making this transition fastest compared to other cities their size.

Does anyone know?

If I had to guess, here would be my guess:

1. Washington DC
2. Atlanta
3. Phoenix
4. Denver
5. Seattle
6. Portland
7. Chicago
8. Los Angeles
9. Boston
10. Miami

I've gotten burned following Forbes' "advice", and have learned to avoid their data.
