In cities across the country, first-time buyers have been shopping at one of the most difficult times in modern history, facing a one-two punch of skyrocketing home prices followed by enormous spikes in interest rates.
I am a reporter at The New York Times who covers real estate. I am interested in speaking with first-time home buyers who are house hunting and are worried they may never be able to own a home. If you’ve been searching for your first home and have not been able to find one, we want to hear from you. Tell us your biggest obstacles: Are the prices too high? Are rising interest rates pushing you out of the market? How has the market impacted your plans for owning a home?
