    We are planning on putting 10% down. If we went with an FHA loan, we probably would be putting down 20%, but since we’re going with a VA loan and are not required to put anything down, we’re only putting 10% down.

    We did 10%.  Obviously I’d rather have done 20%, but we were ready to buy, interest rates were low, and for a cheap house like ours ($130,000), PMI is only like $20/month.

    We put down a little over 20%, which was about 120k.
