Young people are facing an uphill battle: The housing market.
There are rising home prices, low supply, and high interest rates. While a booming economy means less unemployment, the real estate market and temperment of potential home buyers hasn’t caught up.

Student loan debt and higher rent prices in desirable living areas leaves little wiggle room for young people to add to their savings.
