While around 58-percent of aspiring homeowners lack the funds for a down payment on their first home, a full three-quarters of them say that they would be willing to work a side job if it meant they could own a home sooner. Around the country, the goal of homeownership seems out of the realm of possibility for many would-be first-time homebuyers. There are a few markets that are easier for first-time homebuyers to get their foot in the door, so to speak.
The top three metro markets for first-time homebuyers this year are Tampa, Las Vegas and Pheonix. These markets offer better conditions for first time home buyers due to affordable home price, very strong appreciation forecasts, plenty of available listings and ample listings with price cuts. SO, homes in these areas are also great investments for the first-time homebuyer. Couple that with ample options for first-time homebuyers to get help paying for down payments in the Sunshine State, and you can see why young adults are flocking to Tampa.
