Raleigh in Top Ten Cities for First-Time Homebuyers
Nick Wallace, Mar 18, 2015, Smart Asset
As we move into spring, many potential first-time homebuyers will be eyeing their local housing market and trying to decide if now is the time to make the leap to homeownership. For most, it is the financial decision of a lifetime—a home, after all, is not only a place to live, but a significant investment in the sometimes volatile housing market. New homeowners, who usually have shorter credit histories, smaller savings accounts and lower incomes, need to be especially sure that they are making a good decision.
Among the most important factors to consider when buying a first home, however, is location. Some markets provide the affordability, accessibility and stability that are so important for new entrants into the housing market, while others may be too risky or too expensive for first-time homebuyers.
