Millennials put pets first when buying a home

Real Estate

Millennials are having a love affair with pets — so much so that they're often putting their furry friends' needs at the top of their list when shopping for a home.

Luxury landlords have been catering to this millennial trend for years, putting in dog runs on rental tower roofs and pet salons off lobbies. Now more millennials are buying homes, and seeking the same amenities.

A full 73 percent of millennials currently own a pet, according to the American Pet Products Association. That is a larger share than any other demographic. For buyers it's even bigger. A whopping 89 percent of millennials who bought a home so far this year own a pet, according to Realtor.com.
