Of course you can, & it is probably preferable as long as you have the 20% down payment so you can avoid the mortgage insurance that Homepath illiminates by raising the interest rates a bit. CAll me if you want to discuss all your loan options with me any time. I am a loan originator & a real estate agent. 206-841-9976

Yes, but note that many properties offered for HomePath financing may need substantial repairs and may not meet standard appraisal guidelines. Make sure the property will appraise before proceeding.
