Younger buyers tend to see location differently from their parents, who didn't face high gas prices and traffic, says Allison Nichols, an agent with Related Realty in Chicago.

"My younger buyers look for properties that are in proximity to public transportation and that have a good walking score," Nichols says.

But there are young buyers, and then there are young buyers with children. The former group may prefer to be close to the action of the city, while the latter might prefer something a little more residential.
