How to purchase a home without 20% down!

Are you holding off buying a home because you don’t have 20% down payment saved?! Would you like to buy, but not sure if your credit score or income will limit what you can afford? Good news! There are many options available for you.

While having 20% down with a 800 credit score is very desirable, many people could qualify to buy their own homes. You just need to know your options and talk to the right lender to see what is possible for your situation! Here are the different type of loan options to consider when buying a home:

VA Loans

  • 0% down
  • No mortgage insurance
  • No upfront fees
  • Available to current or former military
  • Subject to VA inspection/underwriting

FHA Loans

  • 3.5% down
  • 1.5% Upfront mortgage insurance ( can be wrapped into loan)
  • Available to most buyers with credit scores 579+
  • Subject to FHA inspection/underwriting

USDA Home Purchase

  • 0% down
  • 1% Upfront mortgage insurance (can be wrapped into loan)
  • Available to most buyers with credit scores 640+
  • Subject to location and income requirements
  • Home Buyer class required for loan approval

Home Ready/Home Possible

  • 3% down
  • 3% Upfront mortgage insurance ( can be wrapped into loan)
  • Available to most buyers with credit scores 579+
  • Subject to  income requirements
  • All the down payment and closing costs can come from a down payment gift.

Conventional 97

  • 3% down
  • PMI required for loans with less than 20%
  • 680+ credit scores with 75% LTV
  • Not subject to  income requirements

Low Downpayment Lenders

  • 5% down
  • PMI required for loans with less than 20%
  • 680+ credit scores
  • Not subject to  income requirements
  • Submit to conforming loan limits

Determining the best financing option also depends on your current market, the terms of your offer and strength of your lender! Using a local bank, versus a large corporation or internet lender will help your contract be competitive and also ensure that you will make it to settlement.

If you are curious about downpayment options and picking the best program and lender for you, contact us at admin@wethmangroup.com!

The Wethman Group’s Real Estate News

May 2017

Greetings!

The Spring market is in full swing, with lots of activity on the buyer side, but the real story is still low inventory. The median sales price in our area reached the highest on record  for the second month in a row, easily beating last April’s record by 4.1%, and up 3.9% from last month. However, new pending sales were down 8.3% from this time last year, and down 2.5% from last month, coming in under the 5 year April average. So what gives? Inventory!
April new listings were down 13% from April last year and down 6.7% from last month! This is below both the 5 and 10 year April average, but still above the 10 year low we saw in 2012.
This low inventory means the market is moving FAST as buyers are competing for the listings that DO hit the market. Average Days on Market for April was 10! That’s down from 14 days last April and from 15 days last month.
We’re still seeing multiple bids on most properties that are priced to sell, and significant offers over asking in a few pockets of DC and Arlington. Even though the market is competitive, we have a lot of happy buyers right now! Making the most attractive offer isn’t just about competing on price. There are many components that play into the strategy of an offer. If you are thinking of buying, let us guide you on how to put your best foot forward in this hot market. Set up a conversation with one of our buyer agents to come up with a strategy that is tailored to your goals.
Thinking of selling? Now’s the time! Inventory declining now at the peak of the spring market is huge. Buyers are out and ready to move, but not finding many options. If you have been considering a change, start the conversation with our listing team to figure out your how to position your property to maximize your return.
