First-timers have always made up a large share of home purchases, and the median age of first-time home buyers has hovered around 33 for the last five years. In the late 1970s, the median age of first time home buyers actually dipped to around 29.

The word “craft” is unregulated in advertising and labeling – pretty much any producer can call itself a craft spirit. However, as one industry insider quipped, a craft distillery is “A place where the owner actually flips the switch that starts the still running.” Indeed, some distilleries are involved in every aspect of creating their spirits, a process sometimes marketed as “Grain to Glass.” The American Craft Spirits Association (ACSA) represents the U.S. industry and it defines craft as distillers that produce no more than 750,000 proof gallons annually. The distillery also can’t be openly controlled

The oldest millennials are now reaching the age at which most Americans have historically bought their first homes. The generation is finally aging into the prime years for first-time home buying, and evidence is mounting that they’re becoming the dominant force in the U.S. housing market. 

by a large supplier. What’s behind the boom in craft spirits? There’s been a shift in a variety of beverage categories to sell more items that are not mass produced, often made locally, with limited scale and distribution. That consumer-led movement is most advanced within beer, but craft is happening in spirits, soda and coffee. Gen-Xers and millennials list “craft” and “local” among the reasons they choose the liquors they do. Basically they’re looking for smaller brands made by actual people using old-school methods. According to a study backed by the ACSA, the craft spirits industry achieved $2.4 billion in retail sales in 2015, growing at an annual growth rate of 27.4% in volume. Some experts say craft can capture as much as 30% of the market in the beverage world. Ten years ago, there were roughly 50 craft distilleries in the United States. Today there are an estimated 1,315 and that number is expected to grow as distilleries continue to get support from retailers and wholesalers who have seen the success craft brewers have already achieved. If support from consumers and retailers follow the success brewers have had, the potential for craft spirits growth is enormous. Craft spirits and creative cocktails now run the gamut from classic bourbon to sipping tequilas, from artisanal gin to ginger-infused vodka. So whet your whistle and get in the spirit!

“Millennials are delaying all kinds of major life decisions, like getting married and having kids, so it makes sense that they would also delay buying a home,” said Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Svenja Gudell. “We know millennials value homeownership and want to buy.” As millennials reach peak home-buying age, their needs and wants are shaping the future of the housing and mortgage industries – much as the boomers did before them. It goes without saying that the current generation relies on technology. More than 50 percent of millennials search for homes on their phones and, among those, 26 percent end up buying a home they found that way, according to data from the National Association of Realtors.

he liquor industry is seeing a movement take hold across U.S. bars and retail outlets that could mirror the success microbreweries have enjoyed for the last decade or more. Craft spirits have gone from obscurity to ubiquity over the past several years and afficionados are raising their glasses to toast the trend. But what exactly defines a craft spirit?

Real estate agents are finding that new buyers, and particularly millennials, like having information at their fingertips. Mobile traffic to phone apps has even outpaced traffic to many real estate desktop sites, according to area agents. Millennials are driving more than just web traffic. They’re generating a lot of change in the market and that means they’re moving up and out!
