How Does Ohio Rank in Downpayments?
The average down payment for a home is decreasing, which could be good news for those looking to buy. Prospective buyers may need to save less money for a down payment, according to a new study by LendingTree.
The average down payment amount for U.S. homes dropped in the third quarter by nearly 10 percent, falling from $52,480 to $47,265, the study shows. However, the overall average down payment percentages for conventional 30-year, fixed-rate purchase mortgage offers stayed about the same—about 18.05 percent.
