Many Millennials Want to Become Homeowners, But Believe It’s Impossible

FACTS ON MILLENNIALS AND HOMEBUYING

  • U.S. millennials total 66 million individuals and 24 million independent households
  • The median age for first-time homebuyers has remained virtually unchanged for the past 40 years: In 2015 it was 31 years old, compared with 30.6 in 1970-74
  • Two-thirds of millennials haven’t reached that homebuying age of 31, and 22% are under 25 years old
  • Millennials are renting for a median of six years before buying, compared with a median of five years for renters in 1980
  • Millennials are expected to form 20 million new households by 2025
  • The median income for a millennial older than 25 is $38,220

MILLENNIALS WANT TO BUY HOMES

A 2014 survey by housing finance giant Fannie Mae found that the majority of millennials said they consider owning a home more sensible than renting for both financial and lifestyle reasons — including control of living space, flexibility in future decisions, privacy and security, and living in a nice home. Many young renters in the survey appear to be on the brink of homebuying, and 49% said their next move would likely be to own a home.

MILLENNIALS ARE LARGELY UNAWARE OF DOWN-PAYMENT OPTIONS

While younger renters cited a down payment and closing costs as the second-most-common reason for not buying, they may not know how much money is required. In a 2015 survey by Fannie Mae, 42% of those ages 18-34 said they didn’t know what lenders expect of them, and 73% were unaware of lower down-payment options that range from 1% to 5% of the home’s purchase price, as compared with the commonly cited lender preference of 20%.

Many Mortgage Brokers underwrite loans with down payments as low as 0% to 6%, the most popular option for first-time homebuyers and those with lower credit ratings. RealtyTrac estimates that about 30% of all homebuyers put down 3% or less on the cost of the home.

“Many millennials believe they are unable to afford homes, when really many of them are unaware of the different financing options that exist — particularly those that allow for a down payment of 6% or less.
