Down Payment Requirements
Did you know that different loan types have different down payment requirements?
Although putting down the minimum may sound appealing, you will often find that you can get improved rates, lower cost mortgage insurance and qualify for a more expensive home by putting down more than the minimum.
The following are the minimum down payment requirements by loan type:
- 3% for first-time home buyers (anyone that has not owned a property in the past 3 years)
- 5% for everyone else
- 20% if you don’t want to escrow or pay mortgage insurance
Portfolio: 20% down
