Lower mortgage rates = bigger savings.

We know that one of the hardest things about buying a home is coming up with the down payment. How much money you put down actually factors into what type of mortgage contract you’ll be offered. If you put down 20% of the purchase price of the home or more, you’ll have what’s known as a conventional mortgage. If you put down less than 20% of the purchase price of the home, you’ll have a high ratio mortgage. It’s important to note that homes worth over $1 million must be purchased with a down payment of at least 20%. Below, you’ll see how rates on conventional mortgages compare to high ratio mortgages since this past April.
