Conventional loans require anywhere from 3-5% down-payment depending on the specific program. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac both offer a first time home buyer program which will allow only 3% down for qualified borrowers and USA Mortgage will be granting 2% of that which will make it more affordable for first time home buyers.
Characteristics of 3% Down Payment Mortgage
Properties must be owner-occupied.
Borrowers can’t own any other property.
3% Down Payment Program
Conventional loans will have PMI if there is less than 20% downpayment/equity. There are no up-front fees added to the loan and the PMI varies based on credit scores, the amount of down-payment and other factors. Buyers will have options of doing the monthly PMI or buying up-front via lender paid MI or borrower paid MI.
Plus 3% down payment program needs Homeowner education.
