It found that the average age of millennial homebuyers also increased slightly at 30.1 years from 29.5 years in March 2017. The tracker indicated that in March 2018, males were listed as the primary borrower on 63 percent of closed loans to millennials, while women represented 32 percent, and five percent were unspecified. Married millennials represented 52 percent of all closed loans while 47 percent were for single millennials.
