According to the 2021 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends report from the National Association of REALTORS®, more than half of home buyers (53 percent) cited finding the right property as the most difficult step of the home buying process. It was by far the most challenging aspect of the process according to the data.

Some of the other difficult steps home buyers faced during the home buying process included:

  • paperwork (17 percent),
  • understanding the process and the steps they needed to take (15 percent),
  • and saving for a down payment (11 percent)

It’s also noteworthy that 20 percent of homebuyers reported facing no difficult steps at all while buying their home.
