A down payment on a house is money that a buyer will pay at closing, usually expressed as a percentage of the home’s total purchase price. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Northville and Novi neghborhoods and we know that a down payment isn’t a random number pulled out of thin air that you hope sounds impressive. Research and strategy are involved when deciding on a figure for a down payment, which will depend on your savings and how much you’re willing (and able) to finance. The median down payment for a house is around 12% for all buyers, 7% for first-time buyers, and 17% for repeat buyers. Down payment amounts have trended downward compared to 1989, when the median down payment for all buyers was 20%, with first-time buyers putting down 10% and repeat buyers putting down 23%.

While most people have heard that 20% down is some kind of standard, many are unaware that it is possible to buy a home with as little as 3% down — or even no money down, depending on the loan requirements.
