Living on your own can be expensive. More and more millennials today are living at home longer because they can’t afford to move out. Even with a roommate or two, the cost of living for young people is getting higher, but paychecks aren’t. Millennials are also big on luxury living, or at least a way of life that is more extravagant than many older generations are used to.

If you’re a millennial, or you know someone who is, and you’re looking for affordable apartment options with luxurious elements, these are some great choices to consider. With top notch amenities and reasonable rates, millennials might be able to make the move out of mom and dad’s basement sooner than they planned!
