Where are Millennials moving? The answer may surprise you

October 7, 2017View for printing

It's no secret that young people are getting married and starting families later in life than their parents did. It is, however, a bit of a secret where they are choosing to settle down.

Big cities and their big employers have always attracted young workers, and that's still true. But a combination of factors -- sky-high home prices chief among them -- have sent Millennials across the country looking for alternatives.

What it does mean is that there are Millennials who are willing to move to small towns, likely because they are finding jobs there and they are finding a much more affordable cost of living, particularly when it comes to housing."
