<Northern Virginia first-time buyer demographics.

The typical Northern Virginia buyer spent five weeks shopping, saw
nine houses  and moved only 8 miles to the next home.

The median income of entry-level Northern Virginia buyers was $86,100
and 68 percent of first time home buyers were aged 25 to 34 years.
First time home buyers accounted for 38 percent of houses bought in
Northern Virginia compared with 40 percent nationally.

This article also has national statistics for first-time buyers.

Fleishman. Washington Post. March 25, 2006.

D.C. who claimed under the Tax Credit Program. 72.7 percent of
first-time home buyers participated in the program.

County First-Time Homebuyers program.

City renters transforming themselves into city homeowners appears to
be a major trend, previously unreported by NARPAC. A recent survey of
current DC home buyers indicated that 68% were already DC residents,
predominantly renters.
