Are You 1 of the 59 Million Planning to Buy This Year?
According to a survey conducted by Bankrate.com, one in four Americans are considering buying a home this year. As a result, if this statistic proves to be true, 59 million people will be looking to buy a home in 2017. So the question is, are you 1 of 59 Million Planning Buy home in 2017?
The survey also revealed 3 key takeaways:
- First of all, those most likely to buy are ‘Older Millennials’ (ages 27-36) or ‘Generation X’ (ages 37-52)
- Minorities, particularly African-Americans, were twice as likely considering purchasing a home this year than white respondents.
- Many potential buyers believe they need to put 20% down and need to have perfect credit. As a result, most are unaware of programs that would allow them to buy now.
Holden Lewis, a real estate mortgage analyst for Bankrate.com, pointed to one big reason why many Americans are starting to consider homeownership:
“Having kids and raising a family is a primary reason why Americans take the leap into homeownership—many consider it a key component of the American dream.”
