Gen X, not Baby Boomers, spending the most money on homes [infographic]

Generation Y has proved to be the most budget-conscious. 

June 30, 2014 |

If you're looking for insights on who's buying homes these days, one of the many angles you can approach it from is generational. Two weeks ago, we posted an infographic from John Burns Real Estate Consulting chronicling generational preferences of amanities in home-buying.

The infographic below, also from John Burns, shows who is in the market buying homes—and how much they're paying for them. 

It turns out that Generation Xers, who have the highest incomes of the three generations surveyed, are paying the highest home payments and tend to have the largest households. Baby Boomers tend toward households of two or fewer more than any other generation, and Generation Y has proved to be the most budget-conscious.
