The time has finally come.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group has shortened its name.

Millennials are entering the home buying market in a big way, and have been for the past few years.

But that's not to say that they haven't faced obstacles, many of which are still shaping how, when, and why they're jumping into the real estate market.

The desire to own a home hasn't changed much for the younger generations, but rising student debt, stagnant wages, high rents, and later marriages, have all pushed back the home-purchasing decision for those born between 1981 and 1997.
