EvanED ~I just read through the whole thread and I wanted to bring up something that I encountered when I bought my first home. This was over 30 years ago and we had 10% down but had to pay PMI because we didn't put down 20%. The idea is that once your home is under 80% of the value then the extra monthly expense will stop. I will tell you that oftentimes the lien-holder does not wish to curtail this and you may have a bit of a struggle to have it removed. PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) is to protect the lien-holder from you not paying your payment since you have so little "skin in the game". You may want to inquire about that when you look into financing.Robyn
