Millenials Are Buying Homes with Their Dogs in Mind

millennial dogs 2

According to a recent article on How Stuff Works.com, more millennials are buying homes with their dogs in mind! A 2016 study done my Mintel shows that 7 in 10 male millennials and 3 in 5 female millennials own dogs. In another survey completed by Harris Poll and SunTrust Mortgage, released late last month, it was found that as many as 33 percent of millennials who purchased their first home say they purchased a home to have more space and a better yard for their dogs. Additional survey results show that millennials are happy to spend money on their pooches, too. 76% of millennials say they like to splurge on such items as custom beds and expensive treats for their furry friends.

In a recent Facebook Live event, Shannon met with Laura Delli Paoli to talk to her about some of her favorite places in the area to take her dogs, as well as the reasons why she, as a millennial, purchased a home in the suburbs for a better life for her dogs. Click here to see the blog post.
