How much do I need to put down on my home loan?

For conventional financing that answer is going to be: it depends. With great credit as little as 5% down has you in a conventional loan. With mediocre credit, 10%. But to eliminate the mortgage insurance you still need 20% down. Sometimes, with a bit more down, you may be able to get a better rate. Having a lender who will talk to you and find out what your needs are and presents different options is the best thing. Robyn Robertson from Suburban Mortgage (480-355-8106) talks to me in this video about different types of conventional loans and what is available today in the ever changing world of home lending.
