There is no single down payment percentage for all mortgages. Rather, there are numerous programs. It is worth shopping all local lenders to find the program that works best for you.

Many factors do come into play including mortgage type; for example an FHA loan only requires 3.5% down. Feel free to contact me with any other questions or if you need any further real estate assistance. Stay cool out there.

Yes, it's possible to buy a house with less than 20%. But you always want to talk to your mortgage lender/banker first. Your downpayment requirements depend on a combination of your credit score, income, debt, purchase price, whether you're living in the house or renting it out, and other factors.

Feel free to call me if you have any questions. And if you aren't already pre-qualified you should get pre-qualified ASAP to determine your downpayment requirements as well as other costs.
