How much do I need to put down?

A down payment of 20% or more helps you get a lower interest rate and avoid paying private mortgage insurance (PMI). But you do not need that much. These loans have lower down payment options for home buyers:

  • Fixed-rate conventional loans like the 30-year fixed and 15-year fixed usually require a down payment of at least 3%
  • FHA loans have a minimum down payment of 3.5% for both fixed and adjustable rates.
  • USDA loans are available with no down payment for properties in rural areas.

Keep in mind that your minimum down payment may be higher if you're buying a second home or an investment property. Ask a Home Loan Expert about your options.
