All other things being equal on a mortgage (interest rate, fees, APR, and prepaids) is it better to put 5% or 10% down?

Asked by Eugenian, Eugene, OR Sun Aug 3, 2014

For example, what if I were to take the extra cash and pay down the principle after closing. Is there any advantage to this? I don't have enough for 20% down, so will be looking at mortgage insurance
