Helping you secure the financing that’s right for you.
Many first-time homebuyers are understandably concerned about large down payments draining their savings and creating financial stress. However, there are several mortgage options out there that allow buyers to make a low down payment — or no down payment at all. These options are especially ideal for first-time homebuyers, helping you keep more money in the bank to use toward other expenses.
Loan programs for first-time homebuyers include:
Most conventional mortgages, which are non-government-backed loans that conform to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines, require down payments ranging from 5% to 20% — but some allow for as little as 3%, making them perfect for first-time homebuyers on a budget.
FHA loans, which are insured by the Federal Housing Administration, allow for down payments as low as 3.5%. Plus, they have flexible credit guidelines, which makes them ideal for younger homebuyers who may not have significant credit built up yet.
Active-duty service members, veterans, and eligible surviving spouses of veterans can secure a mortgage backed by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. With a VA loan, you may not have to make any down payment.
We’ll help you move into your first home sooner.
