Much was made of the homeownership rate dropping to a 50-year low last year. It was thought that tastes had changed, especially among Millennials, and that people craved more mobility through rentals and smaller, more urban homes. Then something happened earlier this year: Millennials drove up the homeownership rate. Judging by continued buyer demand well into autumn, it would seem that owning a home is still as desirable today as it was 50 years ago.

  • New Listings decreased 1.7% to 1,365
