There isn’t a lot American millennials wouldn’t do to have a chance at owning a home some day.
According to a survey of 500 millennials conducted by OnePoll, nearly half of millennials would swear off Instagram forever, and one in four would be willing to spend a week in jail, if it would help them one day achieve the American dream of owning their own home.
So how badly do they want to own a homeY Well, check out this complete rundown of responses from the survey:
In a sign of how desperately out of reach most millennials consider homeownership to be, some 30% of respondents said they felt they had a better chance of dating an A-list celebrity than ever owning their own home. Meanwhile, 40% of respondents said they felt homeownership is “completely out of the question” unless they inherit property from their parents, and 42% said they would like to buy a home, but they simply can’t afford it. Nearly half of respondents believe that buying a home would be more difficult now than it was 30 years ago. In a similar vein, only 8% of millennials disagreed with the belief that life is harder now than it was for Baby Boomers.
