Home ownership is attainable for young adults.

Home ownership is a core value for Gen Z. According to a 2018 survey of renters conducted by Property Shark, more than 80% of participants born after 1995 planned to buy homes by 2023. Qualifying for a mortgage IS an attainable goal for young adults and it comes with many personal and financial benefits.

Home buyers no longer need to waste a decade or more saving money for a 20% down payment. In some cases, it’s possible to buy a house with no money at all out of your own pocket.

Low Down Payment Options

  • Down payments as low as 3% with a credit score of 620 or better.
  • FHA loans require only 3.5% down and a 580 credit score or better.
  • Down payment assistance programs available.
  • VA Loans cover the entire purchase price with no down payment required.

Realistic Underwriting Standards

  • Student loan debt may be excluded for some borrowers.
  • College attendance can be counted as job history with a current job offer letter.
  • Down payment funds can be a gift from family.

If home ownership is important to you, talk to a licensed Boles Group loan officer who will review your financial situation and help you come up with a customized home buying plan.
