The American dream is still alive as Teens overwhelmingly think that they will own their home.
A new survey found that American teens overwhelmingly think that they will be home owners—a far cry from millennials who were much less sanguine about their fortunes in an earlier study.
The study, conducted for real estate service Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, found that 97 percent of those ages 13-17 believe they will own a home in the future. Compared with the 40 percent of millennials who said in an earlier Better Homes study that they expected to buy a home in the near term, these new figures prove that the younger generation may be more attached to the notion of home ownership.
This means that the next generation to reach adulthood will bring about 21 million hopeful home buyers to the market. For reference, just over 5 million existing homes were sold in 2013, according to the National Association of Realtors.
Lest anyone suggest that the survey's respondents are unaware of what it takes to be a homeowner, the study also found that the average teen has an impressively accurate understanding of the price of a home: Of the 97 percent who said they would own a home, they estimate paying on average $274,323 for their first one. The median cost of a new home in June was $273,500, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Not only are teens significantly optimistic about their home buying, but 82 percent also said home ownership is the most important part of the American Dream, according to the survey. Way to go teens!
