Could 20% Down be the New Normal?

January 26th, 2013 12:14 PM by Christopher Terry

Have you heard? Several governmental agencies are reviewing data to determine what the minimum down payment requirements will be under the new Qualified Residential Mortgage (QRM) guidelines which are scheduled to be released over then next few months.  

One of the original notes suggested that the new minimum down payment should be 20%. You can be sure there will be a great deal of debate over such a change. You can read more about it at:  http://www.kcmblog.com/2013/01/23/will-20-soon-be-the-minimum-down-payment-on-a-home/

If you're considering buying a home and have been on the fence about it maybe now's the time to take the leap. With home affordability hitting new highs in 2012 (see http://www.ezhomesearch.net/Home+Affordability+Sets+a+New+Highs ) and interested rates still near generational lows there really has never been a better time.
