For most millennial college grads the idea of buying a home right out of college is a bit far fetched. Many millennials have taken to moving back in with mom as we pointed out in a post entitled ""We All Work As A Team" – Millennials Explain How It's Going Living 'Rent-Free' At Home." The trend actually so pervasive that home builders are even designing new homes with a master suite in the basement for returning millennials to have their own little "safe space." According to a local builder in the Chicago area:
"For a mere $35,000-plus, the plan can include a bedroom/bathroom suite in a finished basement to accommodate the kids who inevitably will be returning home to live."
That said, for the millennials looking to take the leap and finally get out of mom and dad's basement, we have a great new study for you! Trulia has done some homework and found the best housing markets where you can get the biggest bang for your non-existent buck. Trulia even spliced the data a couple different ways so you're covered whether you're looking for "Space on the Cheap" (lowest price per square foot) or "Big Living" (highest median square footage for starter homes).
