[:en]In a recent press release, Zillow stated that the affordability of the nation’s rental inventory is currently much worse than affordability of the country’s home sale inventory. The release revealed two things:

  1. Nationally, renters signing a lease at the end of the second quarter paid 29.5% of their income to rent
  2. U.S. home buyers at the end of the second quarter could expect to pay 15.3% of their incomes to a mortgage on the typical home

Furthermore, renters pay more than the average of 24.9% that was paid in the pre-bubble period while buyers actually pay far less than the 22.1% share homeowners devoted to mortgages in the pre-bubble days.

Don’t Become Trapped

If you are currently renting you could get caught up in a cycle where increasing rents continue to make it impossible for you to save for a necessary down payment. Zillow Chief Economist Dr. Stan Humphries explains:

“The affordability of for-sale homes remains strong, which is encouraging for those buyers that can save for a down payment and capitalize on low mortgage interest rates…As rents keep rising, along with interest rates and home values, saving for a down payment and attaining homeownership becomes that much more difficult for millions of current renters.”

Know Your Options

Perhaps you already have saved enough to buy your first home. HousingWire recently reported that analysts at Nomura believe:

“It’s not that Millennials and other potential homebuyers aren’t qualified in terms of their credit scores or in how much they have saved for their down payment. 

It’s that they think they’re not qualified or they think that they don’t have a big enough down payment.” (emphasis added)

Freddie Mac came out with comments on this exact issue:

  1. A person “can get a conforming, conventional mortgage with a down payment of as little as 5 percent (sometimes with as little as 3 percent coming out of their own pockets)”.
  2. Freddie Mac’s purchase of mortgages with down payments under 10 percent more than quadrupled between 2009 and 2013.
  3. More than one in five borrowers who took out conforming, conventional mortgages in 2014 put down 10 percent or less.

Bottom Line

Don’t get caught in the trap so many renters are currently in. If you are ready and willing to buy a home, find out if you are able. Have a professional help you determine if you are eligible to get a mortgage.[:es]Don’t Get Caught in the ‘Renter’s Trap’ | Keeping Current Matters

En un comunicado de prensa reciente, Zillow afirmo que la asequibilidad del inventario nacional del alquiler actualmente es mucho peor, que la asequibilidad del inventario de las casas para la venta en este país. Este comunicado revelo dos cosas:

  1. Nacionalmente, los inquilinos que firman un contrato de arrendamiento al final del segundo trimestre pagan 29.5% de sus ingresos para alquilar
  2. Los compradores de casa en U.S.A al final del segundo trimestre podrían pagar 15.3% de sus ingresos en una hipoteca en una vivienda típica.

Además, los inquilinos pagan más que el promedio del 24.9% que se pagó en el periodo pre-burbuja, cuando los compradores realmente pagaban menos del 22.1% de las acciones dedicadas a las hipotecas en los días de la pre-burbuja.

No se deje atrapar

Si usted está alquilando actualmente, puede quedar atrapado en un ciclo donde el aumento en el alquiler continuara, hasta hacer imposible que usted ahorre lo necesario para la cuota inicial. El Economista Principal de Zillow, Stan Humphries explico:

“La accesibilidad de las casas para la venta se mantiene fuerte, lo que es alentador para esos compradores que pueden ahorrar para la cuota inicial y capitalizar en las tasas de interés hipotecario bajas… Como el alquiler siga aumentando, junto con las tasas de interés y el valor de las casas. Ahorrar para la cuota inicial y lograr el objetivo de ser propietario de casa se convierte en algo mucho más difícil para millones de inquilinos actuales.”

Conozca sus opciones

Tal vez usted ya ha ahorrado lo suficiente para comprar su primera casa. HousingWire informo recientemente que los analistas de Nomura creen que:

“No es que los ‘Millennials’ y otros compradores de casas potenciales no estén calificados en términos de su puntuación de crédito o en cuanto ellos han ahorrado para la cuota inicial.

Es que ellos piensan que no califican o piensan que no tienen suficiente dinero para una cuota inicial.” (Énfasis agregado)

Freddie Mac dio unos comentarios exactamente sobre este tema:

  1. Una persona “puede obtener una hipoteca conforme, convencional con una cuota inicial de tan solo el 5 por ciento (en algunos casos con solo el 3 por ciento saliendo de sus propios bolsillos)”.
  2. La compra de hipotecas por Freddie Mac con cuota inicial por debajo del 10 por ciento más que cuadruplicó entre 2009 y 2013.
  3. Más de uno en cinco compradores que adquirió una hipoteca conforme, convencional en 2014 puso una cuota inicial del 10 por ciento o menos.

En conclusión

No caiga en la trampa en la que están tantos inquilinos actualmente. Si usted esa listo y dispuesto a comprar una casa, averigüe si está en capacidad de hacerlo. Que un profesional le ayude a determinar si usted es elegible para obtener una hipoteca.
