Just about everyone I know starts off in a rental property when they get their first full-time job. It use to be that people in the 20s thought they could save their downpayment for a few years and buy their first house in a couple of years. (Not everyone did, but that was the thinking.) Now with housing prices so high, even with low interest rates, many people are finding themselves unable to buy a first home.
So my question is: At what age should a person reasonably expect to buy their first home? In their 20s? Do they have to wait until their 30s, when they have been working for a decade or more? Later? What do you think?
