Yes, you CAN borrow from your retirement account to buy a home, to get a large enough down payment to avoid having to carry mortgage insurance. But should you? Most probably not. There's too much at risk. You'd lose any investment gains the money might gather before the account is rebuilt. Worse, should you leave your job while carrying an outstanding loan, you'd have to repay the money immediately, or face income taxes on the entire amount PLUS a 10-percent penalty for early withdrawal. There are other options. First, go on a serious savings campaign; trim or stop contributions to the 401(k) plan for a while if necessary. Or, in a tighter time frame, look into an FHA loan, which doesn't require such a large down payment. And while you may have to pay mortgage insurance at first, you can cancel it as soon as your equity in the property rises enough. What are your options? Which are the best ones?
