We’re seeking recent, first-time homebuyers across the
Buying a home today can feel impossible. We bet when your
friends heard that you managed to buy, they all wondered, “How
did she do that?” We’ll confess, we’ve also wondered how
first-time buyers are doing it in today’s world of crushing
student loan debt, high real estate prices, and wages that aren’t
going up along with them.
That’s why we’re asking for your story. We want to know how
you saved for your down payment, how you financed the rest, how you
found your dream home (or the one that you could afford right now),
and what you plan to do with it. Note: We’re looking for stories
from folks who’ve bought homes in the last five years.
You can share your story here: http://bit.ly/homebuyingdiaries
We know this stuff is personal, so we’re not asking you to
bare it all on the internet. We’ll turn your submissions into an
ongoing series that will be published anonymously on Curbed. Our
hope is that sharing these stories will demystify how millennials
made the leap to homeownership and promote honest conversation
about the homebuying process.
If you’re a professional writer with a homebuying story
you’d like to report, pitch us!
