Millennials Guide to Homeownership

Who are these people and why is there always so much fuss about them?  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there so much fuss because this is the largest demographic in the United States.  The ones born between 1982 and 2000, and guess what, they're not all the same.

Some are college educated, some are homeowners, some are choosing to start families later in life, some are living at home with their parents.  There's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to describing millennials.
