Blaine MN | Millennials Flock to Low Down Payment Programs

We are fortunate in Minnesota and the Twin Cities to have a number of down payment resources available to first time homebuyers. In particular, buyers considering the Blaine 55449 zip code can find programs in not only the State of Minnesota but throughout Anoka County too. In other areas of Minneapolis/St Paul there are similar opportunities. 

Wondering if there are funds available for you? Find out now using this tool to check for down payment funds available for your situation. Not a millennial? No problem. This tool is for all generations.

Today I would like to discuss a bit more about how Millenials Flock to Low Down Payment Programs

A recent report released by Down Payment Resource shows that 65% of first-time homebuyers purchased their homes with a down payment of 6% or less in the month of January.
The trend continued through all buyers with a mortgage, as 62% made a down payment of less than 20%, which is consistent with findings from December.
An article by DS News points to the new wave of millennial homebuyers:
“It seems that the long-awaited influx of millennial home buyers is beginning. Ellie Mae reported that mortgages to millennial borrowers for new home purchases continued their ascent in January, accounting for 84 percent of closed loans.”
Among millennials who purchased homes in January, FHA loans remained popular, making up 35% of all loans closed. Ellie Mae’s Executive Vice President of Corporate Strategy Joe Tyrrell gave some insight into why:
“It is not surprising to see Millennial borrowers leverage FHA loans because they typically offer lower down payments and lower average FICO score requirements than conventional loans. Across the board, we're continuing to see strong interest in homeownership from this younger generation.”

Bottom Line

If you are one of the many millennials who is debating a home purchase this year, let's get together to help you understand your options and set you on the path to preapproval.

I worry about this group of instant gratification seekers.

Little to no skin in the game worries me for the future

Down payment assistance is great for those responsible home buyers with little savings. USDA is also available in Blaine, WA
