An overwhelming majority of millennials with student loan debt do not currently own a home, and blame the debt for what they expect to be a delay of about seven years before purchasing a home, according to the National Association of Realtors and American Student Assistance.
The 20% of surveyed millennials reporting they do currently own a home are carrying a median student debt load of $41,200, which surpasses their median annual income of $38,800. About 79% borrowed money to finance their education at a four-year institution, and just over half are repaying a balance
- As college costs continue to rise, outstanding student debt has ballooned to an all-time high of $1.4 trillion.
- Still, delinquencies have decreased, which may mean that consumers are managing their loan payments better than they have in the past.
