The January 2019 National Update is now available.
Characteristics of Recent Home Buyers
2/1. To analyze home buyers NAHB uses the American Housing Survey (AHS), a nationally representative survey of residential structures in the US and of the households who occupy them. This report uses the latest AHS release (2017) to provide insight on the characteristics of the roughly 8.8 million households who bought homes in the two years preceding the release of the 2017 AHS. This report also examines the characteristics of two home buyer subsets: first-time home buyers and trade-up buyers (those who previously owned a home).
