One in nine first-time homebuyers (11.6%) surveyed in the fourth quarter said selling cryptocurrency helped them save for a down payment. That’s up from 8.8% in the third quarter of 2020 and 4.6% in the third quarter of 2019.

This is according to a Redfin-commissioned survey of 1,500 U.S. residents planning to buy or sell a home in the next 12 months. The survey, which was fielded to a representative sample of the American population, was conducted by research technology company Lucid from Dec. 10 to Dec. 13, 2021. Respondents were not made aware that Redfin was the sponsor of the research.
