Homeownership

Historic New England

By Sally Zimmerman

Recent news reports suggest first-time home buyers may be entering the real estate market in greater numbers. One banking industry newsletter noted that 2018 witnessed the largest jump in first-time home buyers since the Great Recession. While perhaps too early to be a trend, the inventory of “starter homes” in the market seems to be increasing while prices may be moderating, bringing home ownership within reach of more buyers, at least in some areas of the country.

By Linda Lefko

We thank Brian Ehrlich for his research and for sharing a possible artist’s name.The name of Noah Graves is proposed, since similar work also has been attributed to his hand. As is often the case, without a solid, signed example, scholars take clues from circumstances and visual images to arrive at an attribution.
