Help the community by answering this question:


Yes, HomePath financing only allows for a 3% down payment when the property will be owner occupied. For Second Homes, HomePath requires at least 10% down. If you currently own 4 or more financed proeprties, then the minium down payment will be 25%.

According to the HomePath website, financing with a minimum of 3 percent down IS available for primary residences, second homes and investment properties (see attached link). However, do not take my word for it or trust the website; go to a lender and get pre-qualified, and verify these terms.

You can do a 2nd home on Homepath, but it requires 10% down payment. All other criteria of a Homepath loan apply.

Let me know if I can help.

Yes. The 3% is only for owner occupied home on HomePath.
