How much should you put down for a down payment on a home? It's a question every home-owning hopeful has, right?
Q: "I want to buy a home. I've been saving a lot of money and I just want to know how much do I have to put down? What does my deposit have to look like?"

A: "You want to put down as much as you possibly can, because the lower your debt is going to be, the lower your mortgage payments are going to be [and] the more comfortable you're going to feel, because you live in your monthly payments."

"If you could put down at least 25 percent, you will comfortable and least stressed. Minimum, minimum, minimum is 20," Ryan says.
