Question by Brad: What is the best way to finance a 50k house purchase?
I am thinking about buying a property for about  50k while the housing market is still low. But I only have around 20k in savings. I don’t want to use it all because most likely the property will need some repairs. So, what is the best finance strategy  How much Do I or should I use for this home purchase?

$50,000   Sales Price

20%  =  $10,000 Downpayment

80% = 40,000 Loan

Summary: $ 10k downpayment  $ 40k mortgage

There are other options requiring less down-payment but this would give you the best interest rate and monthly payment.

Get a home inspection before your purchase to make sure the home doesn’t need major repairs.

And last but not least get a fixed rate mortgage.
