64.2% of Millennials Put Down Less than 20%

 

Digital Risk recently polled Millennials about the housing market. Among their findings was the fact that nearly two-thirds of the generation who have recently purchased a home, have done so with less than 20% down; with 36% putting down less than 5%!

Here is a graph detailing the results:

Millennial Down Payments | Simplifying The Market

This means that more and more American’s between the ages of 18 and 34 stopped paying their landlord’s mortgage and started building their own family’s wealth.

Millennials aren’t the only ones taking advantage of lower down payments.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York found that if the down payment required to purchase a home went from 20% to 5%, a renter’s Willingness To Pay (WTP) increased by 40%.

Willingness To Pay | Simplifying The Market

The problem is that thirty-six percent of Americans still think a 20% down payment is alwaysrequired when buying a home. Many renters may actually be able to enter the housing market sooner than they ever imagined with new programs that have emerged allowing less cash out of pocket.

Bottom Line

If you are one of the many renters now realizing that the home of your dreams is obtainable, let's get together and discuss your options.  Contact me here to start you home search.  You can also visit my website to search for your new home.

Hank - It looks like millennials are starting to figure out that they can afford to purchase a home, even if they don't have 20% to put towards a down payment.
