First-time Homebuyers Transition from Renting

Millennials Boosting U.S. Homeownership, A larger number of Americans—notably fueled by millennials—entered homeownership during the summer months. +

The national homeownership rate rose to 64.4 percent in the third quarter—a half percentage point higher than a year ago, the U.S. Census Bureau reported this week.

The increase was largely attributed to a rise in first-time buyers as more millennials entered homeownership. The ownership rate among those under the age of 35 climbed from 35.6 percent in the third quarter of 2017 to 36.8 percent in the third quarter, according to the bureau's report.

“More people are choosing homeownership over renting, and a large part of that story is the historically large number of first-time home buyers,” says Tian Liu, Genworth Mortgage Insurance’s chief economist. “In the past two years, first-time home buyers have purchased at least 1.9 million homes each year. That is more than the pace of household formation over the same period, meaning that the transition from renting to owning is the more powerful driver of housing demand.”

However, the homeownership rate among several age groups did see a in the third quarter. For example, the ownership rate of those between ages 35 to 44 ped slightly from 60 percent in the second quarter to 59.5 percent in the third quarter. The ownership rate of those between the ages of 45 to 54 years old also saw a , decreasing from 70.6 percent in the second quarter to 69.7 percent in the third quarter.
