Down payment

Generally speaking, the larger a down payment you’re able to make, the better, because that means you’ll have to borrow less. But you also don’t want to leave yourself so cash-poor you can’t cover all of the other costs that come with closing a sale.

The minimum amount you can put down is 5% of the purchase price, assuming that you have made an offer to purchase and all conditions have been met. For example, a $300,000 property would require a minimum down payment of 5%: $15,000; however, if your down payment is less than 20%, which is the case for many first-time homebuyers, you will also need mortgage loan insurance.
