Seattle Among the Top 10 Cities for Millennials
CNN Money released a list of the "Best cities for Millennial homebuyers," and they ranked Seattle number seven out of ten.
What factors elevated Seattle to the top? Les Christie cites the "vast coffee culture," "major employers like Amazon, Microsoft, and, of course, Starbucks," along with "other smaller outfits that are creating jobs and attracting young talent."
Further, "between 2010 and 2012, 28% of all people moving into the city were Millennials, five percentage points higher than the average major city, according to the National Association of Realtors."
