With a down payment of this size and good credit, you can pretty well name your loan product and name your rate.
Of course there is 30 year fixed. But for nearly the same payment you can get a 25 or 20 year amortization loan.
A few questions to ask yourself before deciding on a loan product:
1. How long will we live here?
2. Is our goal to pay the mortgage off as quickly as possible?
3. While living here, will we need to access the equity, or do we have adequate reserves elsewhere?
4. Do you want an interest only option?
Find a local lender who understands how to work with customers of your status and keep asking questions.
So, I told him, if he has $80,000 cash in bank, he should buy 5 units with each 20% down. Somehow, 20% is a magic number that bank feel comfortable and treat you as valuable customer and willing to give you best rate yet little hassel.
If Jemmy bought only 1 condo, after years appreciation, he shall have made much less. This would be true in your case when you look back 20 years later...
Your credit determines what can and can't be done but it also depends on your debt to income ratio. How much existing debt you have compared to your verifiable income. If your credit is good and you can qualify, you should be eligible for good rate and terms. Good Luck! Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions, I would be happy to assist you.

Your financing options will all depend on your credit. With such a large chunk of a down payment you may be able to qualify for conforming rates since you won't need any private mortage insurance. If your credit is ify you may be able to go FHA. Is your income verifiable? There will be a lot that goes into the initial mortgage application. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions you may have 800-839-6186x334. Thank you and good luck
