Struggling Economy and Rising Debt Force Young Americans to Delay Homeownership

The American dream of owning a home is no longer accessible to many Americans as the cost of real estate continues to soar. According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the median sales price of a new, single-family home was $416,300 in May 2023, a significant increase from the $84,300 recorded in 1985. Although incomes have risen during this time period, they have not kept up with the rapid growth in real estate prices, causing Americans to delay purchasing their first homes. In 1981, the average age of a first-time homebuyer was 29 years old, but this has since increased to 35 years old.

A variety of factors have contributed to this shift in trends. One major factor is the national debt which has ballooned to over $34 trillion and has led to inflation and economic instability. Additionally, recent policies implemented by the Biden administration, such as allowing up to 10 million illegal aliens into the country, have put additional strain on local and state economies. Despite these challenges, prospective homebuyers can take comfort in listening to advice from young homeowners featured on the “Problematic Women” podcast. These individuals share their experiences and offer practical tips for navigating today’s competitive housing market.

On a recent episode of “Problematic Women,” hosts discussed why President Biden chose to focus on “transgender visibility” instead of celebrating Easter Sunday’s Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Additionally, Florida made strides in protecting unborn life with an important step forward for pro-life advocates around abortion rights. The podcast also highlighted an individual who challenged societal norms and was named “Problematic Woman of the Week.”
