TV, Millennials and Housing: what do these things have in common?

It doesn’t matter which media, you’ve heard about Millennials: that generation born between the late 80s and mid-90s. While they are commonly known by their eccentricities, this generation is now following the steps of Gen X and becoming the next to make smart investments.

It’s well-known that Millennials have been inspired by Pop Culture to make their housing and lifestyle decisions. This doesn’t mean a bad thing; it means they have an idea of what they want and how they want it. The downside of this is the market itself: Millennials are the generation with the biggest market limitations due to housing prices.

Housing has always been a high topic no matter what generation you belong to. For Gen X, they have the highest level of debt, according to the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. Since the early 2000s, US housing interests have lowered, which at that time meant they took all the opportunities and had cheap loans.

So, no one told you life was gonna be this way

This generation was greatly inspired by the famous Friends apartment, which would cost around $4,500 monthly to rent in real life. Moved by this, Gen X thought that by taking loans, they could find places like Monica and Rachel’s apartment by sacrificing some things.

 This is where everything started

In the long run, some people from this generation regret that impulsive shopping. Some regret not being more aggressive pushing for the property they wanted, with the amenities they were looking for, for slightly less money.

Let’s talk about Girls

Millennials are far more observant that we give them credit for. After watching how the 2008 Housing Crisis affected the general economy, this generation accepted that having some amenities would come with more planning. For instance, Millennials usually don’t buy but rent first, start to build their finances first, pay some debts, and then, they decide if they want to move out or buy.

The series that showed a realistic side of this was Girls, where twentysomethings were trying to have a life in the city of New York. This representation of how youth tries to get by each day under the housing situation is possibly the most accurate one.

Millennials have to do more than just move to more affordable places; they usually don’t buy more than they need. They plan their living without taking more debt in.
