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.
