Struggling Economy and Rising Debt Force Young Americans to Delay Homeownership

The American dream of buying a home has become increasingly elusive for many Americans, as the cost of real estate continues to rise. 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, compared to just $84,300 in 1985. While incomes have risen during this time, they have not kept pace with the soaring cost of housing, resulting in Americans purchasing homes later in life. In 1981, the average age of a first-time homebuyer was 29, but in recent years, that age has jumped to 35.

The national debt and economic instability fueled by inflation are some of the factors contributing to this shift. Additionally, the Biden administration’s policies such as allowing up to 10 million illegal aliens into the country have further strained local and state economies. Despite these challenges, prospective homebuyers can find hope through resources such as podcasts like “Problematic Women,” which offer advice for navigating the housing market and sharing stories of recent young homeowners.

On a recent episode of “Problematic Women,” hosts discussed why the White House focused on “transgender visibility” rather than celebrating Easter Sunday’s Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The podcast also highlighted Florida’s strides in protecting unborn life and marked an important development in ongoing debate around abortion rights. The show also featured a “Problematic Woman of the Week,” highlighting individuals who challenge traditional views and norms.
