HomePath financing, available only on Fannie Mae-owned properties, offers great benefits — a 5% down payment (as of November 16, 2013), no mortgage insurance, expanded seller contributions, and more. HomePath Mortgage is available for move-in ready properties for both owner occupants and investors — a limited number of HomePath lenders also now offer HomePath Mortgage for the LLC borrower. The HomePath Renovation Mortgage provides both the funds to purchase and to renovate in one loan.
1. As little as 3% down for Owner-occupied.
2. As little as 10% down for investors and secondary/vacation homes.
3. Down payment (at least 3 percent) can be funded by your own savings; a gift; a grant; or a loan from a nonprofit organization, state or local government, or employer.
4. No Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) on any loan.
5. No Condo Approvals, required. No daily rentals allowed.
6. No Appraisal Fees for a HomePath Mortgage.
7. You may even qualify if you have less than perfect credit. Minimum credit score required is 620 with a 20% down payment or more, and 660 for a down payment of less than 20%.
8. Allows for seller concessions, which means you can negotiate with Fannie Mae to have them pay up to 6% of your closing costs. Discuss with your realtor when submitting your offer.
