What a millennial needs to become a first-time homebuyer

  • More first-time buyers are motivated by emotional factors than financial factors.
  • 75 percent of homebuyers are looking for a home that they can grow into in the next few years.
  • Go where millennials are and provide value and nurturing.

I’m a 32-year-old future homebuyer. I’m finally ready to put down roots and buy a house in my hometown just outside of St. Louis with my boyfriend — but not for another year as to get our financial house in order. I’m moving back to Missouri from North Carolina where I had an internship as I completed my master’s degree.
