Interest rates are at record lows and home affordability is high. Yet many Denver home buyers and others across the country are waiting to buy a home, says a new survey by Move Inc.   
Of the 1,000 American adults questioned, 27 percent said they would buy a home in two or more years but just 2 percent will buy in the next 12 months. Those that are dragging their feet say they’re doing so because of concerns about the future of home values, the economy, and problems saving for a down payment. 
Credit issues also share the blame. About 35 percent of respondents said they’re delaying a home purchase because they cannot get credit or find credit they can afford. 
Of the younger adults who participated—the so-called millennial generation—80 percent are very picky about the home they want because they believe their home will define them and become part of who they are. Many feel that a home is not so much an investment as it is a place to enjoy life, whether that’s in a Denver neighborhood or another location. 
Younger adults may also be waiting because they want to be able to spend more on housing, with 40 percent of milllennials believing they should spend 30 to 60 percent of their gross monthly income for a home. By contrast, over 50 percent of older people say they’ll spend less than 30 percent of GMI on housing. 
So despite all the positive factors for buying a home now, people’s concerns—real or perceived—may be keeping them from buying a home in Denver or anywhere else for a while longer. Only time will reveal the effects of this delay on the overall housing market.

Those that are dragging their feet say they’re doing so because of concerns about the future of home values, the economy, and problems saving for a down payment.  This is understandable, but really, how long is a buyer willing to wait to buy real estate?  Its senseless to wait until all the stars are aligned and the perfect environment is there for buying a home.  If you need housing in the near future, the time is now.
 
Credit issues certinly share the blame. About 35 percent of respondents said they’re delaying a home purchase because they cannot get credit or find credit they can afford.  And lenders are so tight these days on their standards its unbelievable.

Sorry but that holds true for ANY generation.  Many feel that a home is not so much an investment as it is a place to enjoy life, whether that’s in a Parker neighborhood or another location.
