Low Down Payments

Are you wondering how much you need to save for your new home?
It may not be as much as you think.

0 DOWN

The VA and the USDA both offer a zero down loan program for individuals and/or properties that meet their criteria. Sometimes, loans require little or no cash out of pocket. Some HUD properties are available with as little as $100 down


3%

Some Fannie Mae Community and Home Path ® programs allow just 3% down. You may even be able to fund your down payment through gifts, grants, employers, government agencies, unsecured loans from family or even with loans against CDs or retirement accounts.


3.5%

The FHA loan program allows as little as 3.5% down, and it is more lenient than most other programs on minimum credit scores.


5%

Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac conventional loans are available with down payments as low as 5%. The minimum changes based on property type, credit score, occupancy, etc.


ARE YOU SURPRISED at how low you may be able to go? While many believe a 20%  Mae, Freddie Macdown payment is required, you can now see that it’s far from the only option.
