Omaha Voted #3 For First-Time Homebuyers
 The Fairfield Team 4/26/2017 6:00 AM

In 2016, Omaha was named the most family-friendly city. This year, the National Association of Realtors voted Omaha #3 in the nation’s top cities for first-time homebuyers. Many first-time homebuyers worry about how to come up with the large down payment, if they make enough to qualify, if their credit is good enough, or if they’re ready for this major life step.

What plays into this decision from the National Association of Realtors and SmartAsset.com?

Well, here at The Fairfield Team, we are **more than** a little bit biased, but here are some of our theories on why Omaha’s the best for first-time homebuyers….

Our Schools Rock

School districts play a role in making Omaha an appealing city for first-time homebuyers. Omaha has several amazing public school districts in and around the metro including Omaha Public Schools, Millard, Gretna, Papillion, Bennington, District 66, and Elkhorn. Omaha schools are often included in the highest-rated in the nation for testing, sports, music programs, and academics.

Our Sense Of Community (& The Community Itself) Is Astounding

Omaha has a sense of community that give families and first-time homebuyers a sense of belonging. Omaha has everything from museums to a world-renowned zoo and much more. (Not to mention our awesome breweries, restaurants, & music scene!)
