Weekly Market Activity Report for Week Ending November 26 Tags: Market DataWeekly Market Activity Reports

The share of first-time homebuyers has fallen to an all-time low, with first-time buyers making up 26% of all buyers for the fiscal year ending June 2022, while the age of the typical first-time buyer increased to 36 years old, an all-time high, according to the National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, which has been published since 1981. Higher borrowing costs and a lack of affordable housing have forced many buyers out of the market this year, and inflation and rising rents have made it more difficult to save up for a down payment.
