The article further explains, "The amount of down payment required depends on a number of factors, but is primarily determined by the purchase price of your new home and the loan program you will be using. Requirements for down payments can vary widely, typically anywhere from 5 percent to 20 percent. Your lender can discuss the different requirements with you as you compare loan programs. There are a number of things to take into account when deciding how large of a down payment you are able to put toward your home purchase. One important consideration is your loan-to-value ratio, which decreases as your down payment increases."
The article continues, "This figure represents how much you owe on your house after your down payment is applied. In other words, it's a percentage that reflects the ratio between your home's unpaid principal and the appraised value. A lower ratio is favored. The higher your down payment, the lower your ratio will be."
