How much of a down payment is required to qualify for a mortgage loan?

May 18, 2018

Most loan programs require some amount of down payment as initial equity in your home. Minimum down payments requirements range from 3% – 25%, depending the type of loan you are taking out (primary residence, investment property, etc).

However, there are a few loan programs that may allow for a 0% down payment to qualified borrowers:

  • VA Loans: Some Veterans may qualify for a loan program with a 0% down payment.
  • USDA Loans: Some borrowers may qualify for a USDA loan with a 0% down payment for a home within designated rural areas.
