RealtyTrac completed an analysis of the most affordable housing markets for Millennials around the country. To identify Millennial-friendly neighborhoods, the survey "considered counties where millennials — defined as those born between 1977 and 1992 — made up at least 24 percent of the total population, and where the millennial population increased between 2007 and 2013."

"Markets in the southeast and Midwest dominated the list of the Top 15 most affordable housing markets for millennials to buy," and "[two] counties in Georgia made the list, led by Richmond County in the Augusta-Richmond County metro area at No. 1."
