Help borrowers reshape their old way of thinking

Many borrowers believe 20% down on their home purchase is their only option. But you know it’s not.

Take this opportunity to reinforce your role as a Trusted Advisor by offering a slightly different angle to your borrowers who have 20% to put down: Ask them to consider putting 15% down instead.

Their monthly principal and interest payment will go up a bit, and they’ll need to purchase a small amount of MGIC mortgage insurance. BUT they get to hold on to the difference… in their savings… for investing… for making home improvements.

The effects of moving from Point A to Point B

  • By putting 15% down instead of 20%, borrowers actually save money on GSE delivery fees
  • Using that discount in combination with MGIC borrower-paid single or monthly premiums provides a wealth of opportunities for borrowers at minimal cost

Shaping the opportunity for your borrowers

It may seem counterintuitive, but putting 5% less down (15% instead of 20%) can have many advantages for borrowers. There are many borrowers who could take advantage of this new line of thinking – but they need your help to see the possibilities.
