Federal Housing Administration loans require only a 3.5% down payment, and they can be a good choice for cash-strapped borrowers. In addition to low down payment requirements, FHA home loans also come with low closing costs and more lenient credit requirements, so they can work for a broader range of consumers. Eligible veterans and active-duty military can also look into VA home loans, which may not require any money down. Again, 20% down is not required for a home purchase.13 October 2021
