Millennials in Canada are resorting to dating apps for meeting the right match that have similar homeownership and financial goals. A recent survey from HSBC shared the results that 4 in 10 people find property and financial goals to be more important than looks when choosing potential dates.
The survey was part of a global poll which included more than 1000 Canadians. The results read that 61% of respondents feel uneasy about buying a property – So the results are more likely due to desperation in finding a partner who can share the costs of homeownership.
“Close to 70% of Canadians own their home but less than 30% do so without a mortgage. It’s good to be a little nervous about the biggest purchase you’ll likely ever make. But you shouldn’t be overwhelmed.” said Barry Golom, Senior Vice President of Retail Banking and Wealth Management Products and Propositions, HSBC Bank Canada.
The results also found that the majority of Millennials in Canada (62.8%) said financial considerations are the reason for their last move. The biggest source of stress was accepting money from parents for their purchase (14%), and the top two reasons for moving was to get more space for their money (25.5%) or a lower cost of living (23.4%).
One quarter of Canadian Millennials admit to checking the value for their property at least once per month, in comparison to the 8% of all Canadian adults (49%) who only check the value annually.
