Home Buying Habits and Behavior

Home buying habits and behavior  are shifting in the current economy.  Only 64% of Americans own their homes leaving a large majority paying rent without building any long term equity or wealth in real estate holdings.  Of these homeowners, only 1/3 are new home buyers…That’s down from 40% only a few years ago.  Probable reasons include higher student debt when leaving college and waiting longer for marriage and children.    The Average age of todays first time home buyer is 32.


Home buyers are faced with many challenges in this volatile market place.  Multiple offers, escalating home prices, increased costs of utilities, rising property taxes and a limited supply of available homes for sale in many mrartkets.  That’s why an experienced and knowledgeable real estate agent is imperitive for the home buyer.  According to Realtor.com, over 88% of home buyers utilize the expertice of a real estate agent to assist in the home buying process.  Your real estate agent can guide you in  the financial decision to  buy a home.  Make sure your real estate agent has the skills, knowledge and support to make this experience a sound and successful transaction.
