A majority of Americans — 79 percent, according to a 2019 Bankrate survey — believe that owning a home is a hallmark of achieving the American dream. The challenge is, many young buyers don’t have enough cash on hand for a down payment or can’t afford the high monthly mortgage payment that goes along with a ‘dream home.’
But, you may be able to swing a “starter home,” typically in the lower price range of homes on the market. Because of their affordability, starter homes may be in need of repair or updating and are smaller than higher-priced homes. But if you are just starting out, a starter home offers the opportunity to own a property and to start saving for a larger home as your housing needs evolve.
Finding a starter home can be challenging, especially when their owners remain in their homes longer. But by turning to an experienced real estate professional who knows the local market trends and your particular criteria, you will get the right guidance in your search to find a home within your budget.
The good news is that for families looking to move out of their New York City apartments, there are starter homes in Westchester County that are within your reach! Check out this list of great options — all on the market now. From center-hall colonials to mid-century modern, this list has it covered. I’d be happy to show you around.
