So you’re in the market to purchase a home in Phoenix, Arizona?  You’ve saved your money, but were hoping to find something with a low down payment.  Unfortunately, most of the affordable houses in your price range are unable to be financed with a FHA home loan.  It is beginning to seem like your only option may be Conventional financing, which requires a significantly larger down payment. 

There is another option.  It is possible to take advantage of today’s low interest rates and affordable home prices in Phoenix, while still benefiting from a reasonable down payment.

You can purchase a home, which is owned by mortgage giant Fannie Mae, for as little as 3% down.  Fannie Mae currently owns many homes taken over through the foreclosure process in Arizona.  These homes can be financed through their new HomePath® program, specifically for Fannie Mae REO properties.  Listed below are some of the highlights. 

HomePath® Financing Highlights

  • Low down payment and flexible mortgage terms 
  • Up to 97% financing for Owner Occupied homes
  • Up to 90% financing for 2nd homes
  • Up to 90% financing for Investment Properties
  • Borrowers purchasing a 2nd home or investment property with maximum 75% LTV/CLTV can own up to 10 financed properties
  • No mortgage insurance option (over 80% LTV requires a 660 credit score and additional fee)
  • No appraisal fees (Sales price is used to determine value)  
  • Eligible properties include 1 to 4 units, condos, and PUD’s
