As a general rule, you can expect to make a down payment of at least 10% of your jumbo loan. Some lenders may require a minimum down payment of 25% or even 30%. While a 20% down payment is a good reference point, it's always best to talk to your lender about all the options. Some lenders may allow a down payment as low as 5% or 10%.

In addition, if you take out a giant loan with a down payment of less than 20%, you'll need to pay private mortgage insurance (PMI).

They can also offer the most cost-effective mortgage solutions for the giant loan market, says David Yi, president of Providence Mortgage.
