According to the 2018 Veterans and Active Military Home Buyers Profile, differences in household composition and financing options incentivize home buying demand for veteran and active military.  The results of NAR Research report revealed quite a few contrasts between active-service military buyers and buyers who have never served.

At a median age of 34 years old, the typical active-service buyer was a lot younger than non-military buyers (42 years old) and was more likely to be married and have multiple children living in their household. Active-service members typically bought a larger home that cost more than those purchased by both non-military buyers and veterans.
