Buying your first home can feel like a tug of war between your dream wishlist and your budget constraints.

The good news is “No” today isn’t “No” forever. 

Let me explain. 
Your first home is exactly that — a first home.

And while it might not check every box, it's the foundation that leads you toward where you want to be in 5, 10, or 15 years.

Not to mention that along the way, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having home equity, giving you options if you want to refinance when rates drop or take cash out for big-ticket purchases.  

What’s more, when the time is right for you to sell, you’ll likely reap even more financial rewards.

Right now, owners who purchased their homes 3-6 years ago are seeing a 22.1% appreciation in their home’s value. Those who purchased 7-10 years ago are enjoying an even bigger percentage jump — 46.6%. 

So if you keep thinking about buying your first home but over and over again get cold feet because it feels too hard or too complicated or too out of reach, you can move forward.
