3% Down Conventional Mortgages are Back

by Keith Landis on December 15, 2014

3 downFannie Mae has recently announced that they are re-instating their 3% down payment program for qualified home buyers.

 

The main difference between this new version and the previous 3% down Conventional mortgage is that this new version requires that at least one borrower be a first time homebuyer.

 

Like all Conventional mortgages with less than 20% equity, this program will require mortgage insurance.  Conventional mortgage insurance premiums vary according to the credit score but when comparing this program to other low down payment programs such a FHA this looks to be the cheaper alternative.
