Home sales in the United States have been on the decline in recent years, but many Americans are still buying their first homes, according to data from Trulia.
The Trulia Real Estate Report shows that the number of homes being purchased has dropped from 5,813 in 2016 to 4,898 in 2017.
This is a decline of almost 10 percent, and the number buying homes is up more than 8 percent.
In a 2017 report from Trululia, the percentage of Americans who own their first home is up about 12 percent, with more than half of all Americans owning their first three homes.
It was a year of great news for first-time homebuyers.
In 2017, sales rose 7.9 percent, reaching $10.3 trillion, according the real estate website Trulia, which tracks the real value of real estate in the country.
For years, first-homebuyers and first-cousin homeowners were finding it difficult to find a home to rent or buy.
But a year ago, Trulia said that the percentage that said they owned their first two homes was up 12.7 percent, from 6.9 to 10.3 percent.
The increase in the percentage owning their second home, which is usually the second home they buy, was also up 12 percent from 5.8 percent to 7.1 percent.
That means that for every home bought by a first-timer in 2017, there were seven new home purchases by the same person in 2018, Trulura reported.
«This is the biggest year in history for first time homebuyer demand,» said Trulia CEO Amy Fung in a statement.
