Median US Homebuyers Age in 1981 was 31. Today it is 47.

From Torsten Sløk:

The rise since the financial crisis is particularly noteworthy. This is driven by an aging population, affordability, higher student debt levels, and tighter mortgage lending standards for young people and individuals with lower credit scores. All these forces have also contributed to lower levels of residential mobility, see also our chart from last week.
