First Time Home Buyers: Who are they?


First Time Home Buyers: Who are they?

While homes seem to be selling at rocket speed all over the Carolinas, you may be wondering who is flooding the market. The answer? 38% of all buyers are actually first time home buyers.

The National Association of Realtors® recently released this information along with many other trends in their annual report-Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends. The research basically shows a profile of buyers and sellers in the market. With such a large portion of buyers being first time buyers, you may be curious to know what a first time home buyer looks like.

According to the report, the average first time home buyer is 31 years old with an annual income of $67,400. A down payment for a first time home buyer usually comes from their savings (78%) or a gift from a relative (27%).
