How old were you when you bought your first house?

Real Estate Agent with Samsel & Associates 0790808

Say what you want about millenials - they're certainly participating in the real estate market!

They know a good deal when they see one. The median age of all first time homebuyers was 32 this year - slightly higher for single men or single women. 52% of all first time home buyers were married couples.

I was 26 when I bought my first house and lived there for 14 years before buying the house that we're living in now. Best financial and emotional investments of my life!

Good morning Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl, I was 23, the interest rate was around 10. With low interest rates today, it is a lot easier to become a homeowner, certainly cheaper than paying rent.
