Builders are starting to see more first-time homebuyers entering the new home market, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. revealed in a conference in New York City on Wednesday.

According to The Wall Street Journal, just over 15 percent of new homes were sold to first-time homebuyers in 2014, but so far this year, that number is up closer to 20 percent.

“We do see this as an expanding market,” said Meritage chief executive Steven Hilton. “We saw strong demand in that segment in the last quarter and even more so over the last two months.”
