3% down and no PMI

April 22, 2010

Yes, you read that correctly. Conventional loan, 3% down, no private mortgage insurance, and to top it off… no appraisal required! The program is known as HomePath Mortgage by Fannie Mae and is available to borrowers looking for a primary residence OR an investment property.

Investors using the HomePath Mortgage program need a 15% down payment, but will not be required to get private mortgage insurance or an appraisal on the investment property. Also, the limit on the number of total properties financed in an investors name is waived.

Fannie Mae designed this loan program to facilitate the sale of their foreclosures. There are numerous properties available, and you can search for them here. However, before you find a home and get ready to submit an offer, remember this is a foreclosed property and there are some things to keep in mind:

  • the property is purchased “as is”
  • the property may require some repairs
  • definitely get an inspection!
  • no contingency offers (on the sale of a current home) allowed

All offers must include a prequalification letter. If you are looking to get prequalified, learn more about interest rates this program, total monthly payments, etc., feel free to call or email me. It would be glad to help you through the mortgage process!
