Home prices sour millennial confidence

In the first quarter, 35% of millennials hoping to purchase a home within three years claimed they were confident they could afford a down payment. This is down nine percentage points from a year ago, when home prices were 7% lower at the end of the first quarter in March 2017, according to CoreLogic.
