For millennials in Silicon Valley, buying a home is pretty much a nightmare

How hard is it for millennials to break into the homebuying market?

It’s hard.

Especially in San Jose.

A new report shows that between 2005 and 2015, the rate of home ownership among millennials in the San Jose metro plunged faster than anywhere else in the country — a 34.8 percent decrease “in the heart of Silicon Valley,” as the report puts it.

The report by the Abodo apartment search website shows that when U.S. metros are ranked for having the most millennial homeowners, San Jose ranks 131st on the list. Only 20.2 percent of millennials in San Jose own homes. That’s even worse than in the San Francisco-Oakland metro, where 20.5 percent of millennials are homeowners.

People who Yelp for Chinese restaurants need not apply.

Geez, that cuts out a huge segment of the eligible millennial population, ya think???

Those millennials are worthless anyway in my not-so-humble opinion…

Cut the young’ns some slack, Grand Poobah!!! We were all young and stupid once too…

Glad you finally realize…:slight_smile:

You’re kinda like that dark, smelly medicine drink our mom’s used to make us drink when we were sick… immediate, first impression not good, but we knew it was good for us…:slight_smile:

Not sure I want to be described as a smelly medicine. Where’s the dislike button???
