2 years ago, my wife and I moved from the city out to the suburbs. Our desire was to live in a walkable community with friends and family and have access to some good restaurants and amenities.
According to research from Zillow, almost half of millennial homeowners live in the suburbs. While millennials might have once shuddered at the thought of trekking out to the ‘burbs, this very generation (who make up 42% of all homebuyers), is trading in the hustle and bustle of cities for less chaotic communities. And many of these “surban” environments provide millennials with the kinds of amenities they got in the city, including boutique fitness options, high-quality grocery stores and popular restaurants.
