Housing Wire Mortgage Opportunity Forecast gave 4 reasons why 2016 will be a good year to purchase a home. Reason number 4 has been cut & pasted from this forecast. This will be a game changer once implemented.
4. Down payment protection will be available
Writing a check for a down payment on a home is often one of the largest investments someone will make. Down payment protection is a new option that can give modern homebuyers the flexibility they need to more confidently and securely buy a home. When homebuyers put less than 20% down at closing, this kind of coverage protects their down payment just like private mortgage insurance protects the bank.
Given that the average employee tenure in the U.S. is 4.6 years overall, and 3 years for millennials, it’s understandable that the modern homebuyer may be nervous to commit to living in one location for an extended period of time.
However, the current state of the market and these major mortgage changes will help to ensure that when life happens, the homebuyer won’t be completely out of luck when it comes to protecting their nest egg.
