How much down payment do I need for a home loan?


Looking to Buy new home? If you’re a renter who’s tired of paying someone else’s mortgage, now may be the time to pursue the American Dream of ome ownership. In fact, the days of needing a 20% down payment are long gone. While you can always elect to put down the full 20% or more, here are some facts you need to know if buying a home.

Thinking of purchasing a home, Contact Casey to check your buying power and make a plan to improve you buying power....

In the mortgage industry, 20% down is considered the benchmark down payment for looking strong on paper as a home buyer. While this a general standard for financial strength, it is by no means a requirement, nor is it necessarily expected.

However, keep in mind that your purchase offer amount – your buying power — drives the negotiation. How strong you are on paper does help, but when you make an offer to buy a home, the seller of the property has no idea of your financial strength other than what your real estate agent tells them and what’s on your pre-approval letter. The price on the offer dictates whether you’re in the game for the house, or whether you’ll continue to be on the search.
