Pros and Cons of a No Down Payment Mortgage
While having to put less cash down on a mortgage can seem tempting, there are some things to consider before signing up.
Pros of No Down Payment Loans
- You don’t have to deplete your cash reserves (or wait until you have saved enough) for a large down payment
- You don’t have to worry about paying mortgage insurance on top of your loan repayments, in most cases
- You’ll get more favorable terms from the lender if it’s a government-backed loan
Cons of No Down Payment Loans
- If the loan is not backed by a government entity, then it will likely come with a higher interest rate
- The lender will typically charge higher origination and funding fees
- You typically need a good credit score to be eligible
