What Texas Millennials Want in a New Home


Millennials are the largest growing group of homeowners in the United States. But, if there’s one thing recent research has pointed out, the real estate industry has some misconceptions about what Millennials want in a new home!

CB JENI Homes builds affordable new townhomes in DFW perfect for young professionals and young families. Our valuable experience in building townhomes has helped us identify what Texas Millennials want in a new home. If you’re a first-time homebuyer searching for a new home in DFW, read our list of features we’re sure you’ll love in your new CB JENI townhome.

Suburb Living

People have long assumed that Millennials only want to live in the city. The truth is, the suburbs are not only more affordable than city living, but there are also many new DFW communities outside of the city that offer the desirable live-work-play lifestyle.

Heritage Creekside offers an unmatched Plano location that’s close to the city, corporate headquarters and minutes away from premier shopping and dining. CB JENI’s two-story townhomes in this community offer beautiful brick and stucco exteriors, luxurious inside finishes and select plans with lofts and balconies.

Two other unique CB JENI live-work-play DFW community coming soon: Iron Horse Commons in North Richland Hills and Terraces at Las Colinas. Iron Horse Commons is situated near a train stop for the new TEX Rail commuter rail connecting Downtown Fort Worth to the DFW Airport. The route starts in January 2019. Take the train to work or play and catch a ride back home – it sure beats sitting in traffic!

Terraces at Las Colinas is a new mixed-use development featuring a shopping center, grocery store, restaurants and a hotel. For updates on this community, get on our VIP list by emailing onlinesales@cbjenihomes.com for both of these upcoming communities.

Home Design

In terms of what’s on the inside, what do Millennials want in a new home? A Consumer Insights Survey found that home design is incredibly important to Millennials. The most requested design features were laundry rooms, storage closets, a walk-in pantry and a garage.

CB JENI Homes designs our new DFW townhomes to maximize every square foot of space. Every townhome includes laundry, storage closets, garages and select plans also offer terraces, balconies and front porches.  

Fun Neighbors

Understanding what Millennials want most in a new home goes beyond the home design. Communities with like-minded neighbors and opportunities to socialize also rank high among young homebuyers. That’s why CB JENI Homes also builds in mixed-use developments close to shopping and dining, and master-planned communities like Viridian, which offers desirable amenities including a pool, Amenity Center and active lifestyle program.

CB JENI Homes is proud to build award-winning new townhomes in DFW near major employment centers and entertainment districts. We recognize what Texas Millennials want in a new home, and craft our designs around your lifestyle so you will love living in your new CB JENI townhome.
