by Barbra Murray


Notable news this week included a report on indebted Millennials’ ability to buy homes as well as local filming locations for “Captain America: Civil War.” Stay informed about the latest in real estate news with our weekly roundup:


Student loan debt surprise – New reports from the Brookings Institute and RISMedia have found that student loan debt does not affect home ownership among younger demographics. The reports found that those without a college degree were more likely to own a home at an earlier age because they had settled down earlier. College-educated people, on the other hand, delayed buying a home due to being in college, and were more likely to catch up by age 27, and were also more likely to own a home than those without a college degree. To learn more about the studies, visit Realtor Magazine’s website.


Atlanta makes a cameo appearance – You’ll recognize a few locations in “Captain America: Civil War” – multiple scenes were filmed here, including at the Peachtree Christian Church. Be sure to check out the other filming locations before seeing the movie on Curbed Atlanta’s website.
