NAR presentation touches on millennial impacts, other factors in current housing market
It's certainly no secret in the real estate community that that millennial generation is impacting the housing market. Jessica Lautz is NAR's Managing Director of Survey Research and Communications. Her presentation "Avocado Toast for One, Please" poked fun at the premise many millennials are spending $20 for avocado toast rather than saving for a home. Lautz presented at the NAR Communications Directors Institute. Her insights were among the programming highlights at the event in Austin, TX July 11-13.

Some of the key points: minority homebuyers are growing; millennial homebuyers now outnumber baby boomers, the marriage rate among homebuyers is falling and homebuyers are living longer.
