According to the National Association of Realtors, recent first-time buyers have had to navigate several obstacles to homeownership, including higher rents and home prices, tight inventory conditions and repaying student loan debt. These impediments have resulted in the lowest percentage of first-timers in transactions since NAR began tracking them in 1981.
