Gen-X Homeowners Struggle With Loan-to-Value Ratio


Generation X homeowners, people between the ages of 35 to 50, are lagging behind the national average when it comes to loan-to-value ratio (LTV). According to a new report released last week by Zillow, Gen Xers have less equity in their homes than the average borrower. Gen Xers have an LTV of 70 percent, much higher than the national average of 62%.

Having a higher LTV means that a homeowner has a larger amount left to pay on the mortgage.

The major factor driving this anomaly is that many GenXers bought their homes before the Great Recession and, therefore, lost a lot of equity when the recession hit. Now it’s just a matter of catching up.
