So, what are first-time homebuyers in 2022 looking for? This year, most homebuyers are looking to spend under $350,000 on their new property. This is slightly below the national median, which sits at $353,900, based on information gathered by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Even though the market is competitive, it seems that first-time homebuyers will continue to prioritize their wants and needs.
