September 27, 2017
Buying a home can seem daunting, and the fact is, it can be stressful at times. But the data is in: everything will actually work out! How do we know? Because the National Association of Realtors 2017 homebuying trends report says so, and we agree. Here are some reassuring facts and figures to remind you that homebuying is not as scary as it seems.
1. It’s easy to educate yourself
For the new generation of homebuyers, online resources (like our homebuyer course) make it easy to be smart about every step of the process.
2. Student loan debt doesn’t have to stop you
46 percent (almost half!) of buyers under the age of 37 have student debt, with a median amount of $25,000.
3. You’ll find a good real estate agent
Nearly 90 percent of buyers would use their agent again or recommend them to others. We've got some tips on how to find a great one.
4. You’ll get through the process just fine
Most buyers are very satisfied overall with their homebuying process. Older buyers are the most satisfied. Looks like experience counts!
5. It won’t take forever
While you probably won’t get the first house you make an offer on, buyers typically search for 10 weeks and look at a median of 10 homes. Not too bad.
