Considering a large down payment?

The Primary Benefit of a 20% down payment is that mortgage insurance will not be required.

Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) rates are based on the percentage of down payment and credit scores. Premiums are inexpensive for those with high scores and increase substantially as the score decreases.

For example, a person with a 760 median score with 10% down will pay roughly .25% per year for PMI. Using $400,000 as a loan amount that would translate into about $70/month. A 710 score would require more than twice that much, and as you get into the 600's it rises dramatically.

High credit score borrowers sometimes opt for a lower down payment as low cost of mortgage insurance is a good motivation for keeping the cash invested elsewhere.
