If you, or someone you love, think you need to save enough money for a 20% down payment, think again.  During the time you are taking to save what you think is enough, the prices of homes have risen so much that you may no longer be able to afford to purchase before long, should prices continue to rise.  This is where Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) comes in VERY handy.  Learn more at DeniseHallerbach.com about purchasing with a lower down payment and PMI.
