But not all buyers are facing an uphill battle to put some roots down.
Iowa is the easiest state in the country for first-time buyers, according to the report, thanks to its affordable home prices and strong job market for Millennials.
"Young people are able to buy there," said Bell. "It has a relatively strong job market with relatively low unemployment and strong credit availability."
Millennials looking to buy their first home might also consider settling down in Utah, Minnesota, Kansas and Missouri, which followed Iowa as the easiest states for first-time buyers.
"First-time buyers should cast a wide net when looking," suggested Bell.
"They may want to consider buying a little smaller or farther away from their job than they would have liked. Then, once you build up equity, it can become easier to build up a down payment for a home you like."

Just wanted to take a moment to recommend an outstanding real estate agent. About a year ago my wife and I looked into buying a new house. We looked at exit realty's website and the next morning we received a call from Joseph Schneider. He is a true professional with an outstanding personality he will instantly make you feel welcome as if you're working with a longtime friend. My wife had unusual requests for the property and Joseph listened and found the property meeting all our needs. He is patient and knowledgeable I would recommend him to all. We purchased our new home in August and since then Joseph has remained in contact, just checking in from time to time. You can look but I doubt you will find a better agent !"
