Henderson Was Named The Top City For First-Time Homebuyers

If you're looking for the perfect neighborhood to settle down in, why not choose the best? Henderson was named the top city for first-time homebuyers to purchase in. The town boasts a variety of real estate opportunities as well as a high ranking for overall quality of life.

Wallethub compared over 300 cities in the US with specific aspects in mind to determine which ones rank the best.

The data collected ranged from quality of life and overall "attractiveness" of the area to price and safety aspects.

After comparing the many cities, Henderson came out at number one, with a rank of 64.6 overall.

The scoring system gave the Nevada town a nine in the real-estate market, which measured pricing and the overall market.

As for the "quality of life" score, the city received a 34, beating out other spots like Reno, Scottsdale, and even neighboring Las Vegas.

Wallethub noted that "Where a home is located is just as important as what features it has. If the neighborhood is unpleasant, it can sour the experience of a great home."

It scored high in affordability as well, meaning first-time home-owners will get a good bang for their buck when it comes to square footage costs.

The site noted that COVID-19 struggles have also led to lower rates on mortgages and interest costs.

Henderson has become somewhat of an up and comer, with a variety of shops, restaurants, and other retail areas.

A written plan laid out on the city's website states it is focused on making it "America's Premier Community."

Their mission covers everything from business goals and educational services which are meant to "enhance the quality of life for those who live, learn, work, and play in our city."

A mixture of elements like affordable pricing and good overall area contributed to making this spot ideal for buyers looking to purchase their first home.

Nearby, you'll find that Las Vegas and Reno also offer great getaway destinations for the constant traveler.
