Take The First Steps Toward Homeownership: First-Time Home Buyer Guide


Homeownership is how most Americans build wealth and is one of the most important investments you can make in your community. Although today’s market is riddled with roadblocks for buyers, with the right resources, the dream of homeownership is still achievable. The Alliance has created a guide to help first-time buyers navigate the first steps in the home buying process featuring advice from experts and buyers who recently purchased their first home.

Eight in ten Americans say purchasing a home is a priority for them. The desire is there, but rising mortgage rates, high home prices and low inventory make it more difficult for buyers to achieve homeownership. The average age of a first-time buyer is the highest it’s ever been and the share of first-time buyers in the market is the lowest on record.

A more challenging market demands more support for buyers. That’s why The Alliance created our First Time Home Buyer Guide and supports housing supply and affordability solutions as well as expanded support for first time buyers.

Everyone who wants to build equity through homeownership deserves the opportunity. Our First-Time Home Buyer Guide provides prospective buyers with the resources they need to take the first steps towards homeownership. Learn more about the various programs available for new buyers, the different types of mortgage options and receive real advice from industry experts and other first-time buyers.
