Tips for buying a home in your 20s, 30s, and beyond
No matter what your age, making decisions about your living situation is something everyone will have to encounter as an adult. It may not always be the most exciting topic, especially when you're on a tight budget, but statistics have continued to prove to us over the generations that, in the long run, owning a home is a solid investment. When you're in your younger generations, it can seem like a pretty daunting task, but it's one that you should seriously consider. This great article from Trulia is a really interesting read about what people in their 20s, 30s, and 40s & 50s should be focusing on for their home owning goals. If you're fortunate enough to start planning your first home purchase in your 20s, that will make priorities much easier the older you get. Take a look at the full article below for some great tips!



Diving into DIY
Now that spring is officially here, you may start to think about some improvement projects around the home to spruce things up (not to mention, some of that tax return money might be burning a hole in your pocket!). If you don't want to do any major overhauling while adding value, and don't want to break your budget, there are a few things you can start with that are small. Welcome to the world of DIY. Thanks to modern technology, the process of learning some home improvement basics is just a YouTube video away! If you're a beginner-level DIY'er, there are few things you want to research first. First things first - safety! Here's a great list from RealtyTimes about some common safety precautions to consider when planning a DIY home project. At first, plan out smaller projects to get a feel for what you're capable and comfortable with. Not everyone will be able to do a complete kitchen or bathroom remodel on their first try out - nor should you want to! Take this list of 10 DIY home improvements from Inman for some inspiration for beginner projects. As you work on small things around the house, you'll be amazed at the confidence you gain over time and learning - that pretty soon you'll feel capable enough to host your own DIY show on TV.

We may be looking at the sales and housing information from February, but those crocuses poking their heads up in many fields around Broomfield/Westminster indicate spring is not far away!

A recent survey conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates says 59 million people are considering buying a home this year. That’s roughly one in four adults. Demand for housing remains high, evidenced by 166 of the 232 homes available for sale sold and closed in February.

This same survey shows that the strongest demand is being made by parents with young children. Understandable that they would want to move quickly on a purchase, leading to an average of just 31 Days On Market. Competition is a great motivator, and slim inventory is sparking tough competitions for what is available out there.

The second largest group of buyers are those between 27 – 52 years of age. Low interest rates appear to be what inspires this age group, as they choose to take advantage of home prices before further increases occur.

And prices are continuing to move upwards, indicated by the gap between February 2016’s median sale price of $310,000 and 2017’s $360,000.

Holden Lewis, a mortgage analyst with Bankrate, insists there’s a lot of pent-up demand among younger buyers. “They have been stymied by stagnant wages, student loans and a lack of available starter homes,” Lewis said. “If enough affordable homes are put on the market, we might see a surge of first-time home buyers in their early to mid-30s.”
