When you start looking for a home are you going to be a first time home buyer? If you are have you ever thought that maybe owning your own home wasn't within your reach? If you have, you are not the only one to feel that way! According to the National Association of Realtors' most "older millennials" also feel that same way.
Based on a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors the largest group of first time homebuyers is people aged 25 - 36 (Older Millennials) right now in the us. With the median age being 32 years old. More and more "older millennials" are realizing that their dream of homeownership is actually within their reach right now!
So much so that of the population of new homeowners almost 90% of first time buyers fit into the "older millennials" grouping.
That 90% group can be broken down into these smaller groups:
54% are married couples purchasing a home for the first time

What do you picture when you think of retirement? Is it sunshine? Palm Trees? Boating? Drinks by the pool?

We have the water, weather, sunshine, views, restaurants, you name it.
It's easy to understand why Forbes ranks it in the top 25 places to retire.
Now that you know what city to aim for, there are also some factors to consider. I recently read an article by "Keeping Current Matters." I loved what it had to say.
