Biggest Crash Ever Is (Probably) Coming by 2020: Harry Dent
Bitcoin: Gambling Vehicle or Portfolio Asset?
At a moment when overall home sales are slowing, the first-time homebuyers market is hot. First-timer demand in the third quarter hit its highest level since the same quarter of 2000, Genworth Mortgage Insurance reported Tuesday.
First-timers bought 601,000 single-family homes during the July-to-September period, compared with 567,000 during the third quarter of 2016, an increase of 6%.
These homebuyers accounted for 40% of all single-family homes sold and 56% of all purchase mortgages financed.
According to Tian Liu, chief economist at Genworth Mortgage Insurance, first-time homebuyers buoyed the broader housing market, which contracted 1% from a year earlier.
“The surge in first-time homebuyer demand, and the decline in overall purchases, was driven by supply-demand imbalances in today’s housing market,” Liu said in a statement.
