A common misconception, in order to buy a home, is that you must put down 20%. That may have been how it used to be, but the real estate and mortgage landscape have evolved and changed to make home ownership a reality for everyone!
Houses that sell today for $500,000, sold in the 1950s for $20,000. The evolution of the mortgage is a big reason why. Mortgages entered the American economy in the 1930s. The general format was that the bank would provide 80% of the sale price then the Buyer would pay back the borrowed amount at a fixed rate over a 30-year period.
As mortgages have advanced, different loan types have become available. Currently, the average first-time home buyer puts just 6% down and certain loan programs allow for as little as 3% down or even ZERO down! These programs have provided so many advantages to Buyers who otherwise thought that buying a home wasn’t an option.
