The transition to first-time homeownership is related to household events such as cohabitation and marriage as well as to parents' homeownership. This paper investigates how these relationships have changed during the last few decades, using the first wave of the Netherlands Kinship Panel Study and event history analysis techniques, including interaction effects with the calendar year. The study finds that singles, cohabiters and those who are just starting cohabitation have become more likely to be first-time homeowners than married people without children. The data did not provide evidence for changes in the importance of the intergenerational transmission of homeownership.
