Americans Are Struggling To Find Affordable Homes

The biggest stressor for many of today’s first-time homebuyers is home affordability, according to a new survey by LendingTree. LendingTree asked Americans who plan to purchase a home within the next two years a wide-ranging series of questions about their priorities, thoughts about the market and financial profile. In addition to finding homeownership is a top priority among millennials, the survey also indicates significant education is needed about the mortgage closing process among first-time buyers. Key findings

  • 85% would consider purchasing a fixer-upper to cut costs.
  • 15% of first-time buyers have a score of 740 or higher
  • 25% of millennial buyers want to own a home before heading down the aisle, 43% of first-time buyers across all age groups are single.
