According to the ‘2019 Home Buyer Report’ conducted by Nerdwallet, many first-time buyers still believe they need a 20% down payment to buy a home in today’s market:
“More than 6 in 10 (62%) Americans believe you must put at least 20% down in order to purchase a home.”

“The truth: 32% of current U.S. homeowners put 5% or less down on their home, according to census data.” (as shown below):
