There are mortgage options now available that only require a down payment of 5% or less of the purchase price, but the larger the down payment, the less you have to borrow, and the more equity you’ll have in mortgages with a down payment of less than 20%.
Generally, they require a mortgage insurance policy to secure the loan. When considering the size of your down payment, consider that you also need money for:
- closing costs
- moving expenses
