First-time Buyers Overpay on Housing

April 3, 2017 brianhonea

According to a newly released working paper released by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, first-time buyers, as a whole, overpay on housing purchases—, particularly when compared with repeat buyers. Despite buying cheaper, smaller homes, they out-pay repeat buyers by more than 1 percent—and about $3,000—on the same properties. This is likely due to a higher willingness to pay, the paper stated.
