As with many things in 2016, the housing market has been plagued with various issues plummeting inventory, skyrocketing home prices and affordability problems that are keeping some buyers still. However, NAR revealed a promising silver lining — first time home buyers.
First-timers accounted for 34 percent of all buyers and helped drive one of the best months NAR has seen yet.
But as our latest poll showed, it takes a lot of coaching and patience to reap the rewards of this plucky bunch.
The biggest mistakes first-time homebuyers are related to a lack of financial wherewithal — not talking to a lender first took the top spot, with 61.1 percent of Inman readers saying this was a problem they’d encountered and 18.04 percent of respondents saying it was the biggest problem they encounter.
Waiting too long to make an offer and offering too little for properties rounded out the top three mistakes, with 17.18 percent and 15.46 percent of respondents saying this was the biggest mistake buyers make and 59.62 percent and 57.73 percent of respondents saying they had encountered this mistake before, respectively.
Third but not least, offering too little for properties.
The resounding piece of advice fromreaders is: Listen to your agent!

"Lance helped us close on a home in 21 days. As a retired military officer I had high expectations for the home buying process in central Florida. Lance helped us locate financing, select a title company, get through the inspection process and utilizing a VA loan meeting our tight deadlines. Lance is bilingual and speaks Spanish fluently which helped us greatly as my wife's first language is Spanish. His local knowledge ensured that we were well informed throughout the purchase process. His extensive understanding of FRPTA provided me the confidence to purchase my home from a foreign investor. He also helped with permit concerns which guaranteed we would have no surprises down the road with our purchase. Lance conducted a market analysis that was a spot on to the value of the home and the appraisal actually was higher than his estimate. If you are moving to central Florida this realtor is the best in the business and if you are a veteran you would be in safe hands working with Lance, who is a retired Air Force Officer, who will look out for your best interest and help you find the home you are looking for. Thank you Lance Whipple for helping us purchase our new home."
