LendingTree Compares Average Homeowner Age Across U.S.

New LendingTree report ranks metropolitan areas by the average age of homeowners

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingTree®, the nation's leading online loan marketplace, released its report on the average homeowner age across the U.S. Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, LendingTree ranked the 100 largest metropolitan areas by average homeowner age.

"It's no secret that young and old people gravitate toward different parts of the country," said Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist at LendingTree. "Florida is a well-known haven for retirees, while places such as San Francisco and Austin, Texas, have emerged as millennial boomtowns over the past few years. As a result, the average age of a homeowner varies by location."
