Recreational Property

Do I need 20% cash down to buy a farm or recreational property?

Answer: No. Actually, many people do not have a 20% down payment in cash. In general, most banks want some amount of equity in the transaction and people have always heard a 20% down payment is required, but it can be more or less. Each bank may require a different amount of equity, but the source of that equity can come from cash, another piece of property you own or even your home. If you are interested in purchasing a farm or recreational land, contact one of our experienced lenders and we'd be happy to discuss your next land purchase.
