SANTA ANA, Calif., May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A national survey by Carrington Mortgage Services, LLC (Carrington) and OnePoll found that 64% of Millennial respondents think their biggest obstacle to buying a home was a sufficient down payment.  Despite available capital being a hurdle, the survey conducted in April 2015 of 2,000 Millennials found that 55% plan to purchase a home within two years, a statistic that may have been triggered by the reduction in mortgage insurance premiums (MIPs) announced on January 8 by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

The following infographic shows the survey's insights around Millennials' attitudes about buying a home.

The data was collected last month by OnePoll, a leading online market research company that provides consumer insights for national brands, charities and other organizations daily.
