Why do buyers buy?

So, what is the top motivator for people who plan to buy a home?

Survey says! They want to stop renting. 65% of first time buyers and 60% of previous owners cite this as one of their top-3 reasons for wanting to buy.

Other top motivators include: concern over interest rate increases and taking advantage of an investment opportunity. Overall, 80% of respondents feel home ownership is a good long term investment.

There’s an interesting indicator that suggests that our aging population is influencing the market: 21% of current owners indicated they want to get another home because they want improved accessibility – that is, fewer physical obstacles and barriers.
