Millennials and Housing

Housingwire published a story that loanDepot interviewed 1,000 parents of Millennial-aged children and 1,000 adults ages 18-38 to see what the financial relationship is like between the two.

Seventeen percent of parents said they plan to help their children buy homes, while only 11% expect to be paid back (check out the bottom, left of the graph below).

Oddly enough, the percent of parents expecting to be paid back is significantly lower than the 43% of Millennials who plan on repaying their parents.
