No single issue highlights the financial predicament of millennials like home ownership. Rising tuition costs and the growth in temporary work at the expense of permanent jobs are definitely challenges for young adults today. But the cost of houses outweighs them because it affects their financial well-being today, and in retirement. A poll to be issued by KPMG on Thursday lays out the problem in depressing detail.

Some will never afford a home, which means they won’t have a potentially valuable asset to deploy as part of their retirement plan.
