Survey Says Millennials Are Optimistic About Home Ownership

August 22nd, 2016

Path to home - paid

Conventional wisdom would have you believe that millennials are not interested in home ownership. Eschewing the materialistic culture of the previous generation, they would rather rent apartments so that they can focus on experiences rather than add possessions.

Laying those claims to rest is the recently released “How America Views Homeownership” survey by Ipsos Public Affairs. It shows that millennials have a greater desire to own a home than other age groups. About 40 percent of those 18 to 34 definitely will or probably will buy a home in the next two years compared to 19 percent for those 35 to 54 and nine percent for those 55 and over. Read More >

If you just look on the surface, there seems to be a lack of things to do with four-footed creatures that are not our pets. But scratch a little deeper and you’ll find many opportunities like the following for communing with nature’s fascinating wild creatures.

If you want a close-up view of these marine mammals without swimming in the ocean, pay a visit to the Pacific Marine Mammal Center in Laguna Beach. This organization rescues and rehabilitates stranded pinnipeds that are often injured by human activity, shark bites, and diseases. There’s no charge to visit the patients, which may number two dozen or more. Consider donating money or time support their worthwhile mission. Read More >
