Millenials and Home Buying
In the Bay Area there are many people who fall under the Millenials age range. These are also the people which comprise much of the tech industry and higher income brackets.
Though many are in the position to purchase a home they feel unsure due to a few factors;
- Affordability - many are unaware of first-time home buyer loans and down payment assistance programs. Holmgren + Associates has access to many of these options for younger clients.
- Credit/Taxes - school debt is a big part of Millenial debt and many think that this type of credit debt is a majorobstacle to getting financing. This is not always the case when looking at the whole picture.
- Maintenance - home repairs and move-in costs can be costly. Not all properties require work and condo or townhomes can be great options for low maintenance costs for first-time home buyers.
