Could 2015 be the year when first-time homebuyers start thinking again about purchasing their first house?
Agents at the real estate brokerage Redfin report seeing some positive signs. In the first three weeks of January, the RSVPs to the company’s home-buying classes were up 27 percent, compared to the same period last year.
Also, in the week of January 12th, 57 percent of Redfin home tours were taken by potential first-time buyers. That’s up from 31 percent the week before and from 48 percent during the same week in 2104.
