Mortgage Loan Alternatives

Asked by K Baldwin, 60615 Thu May 31, 2012

I am looking to purchase my first home but in today's market, it seems that I can only find loan options of FHA or Conventional (with 20% down). Are piggy back loans still available in the Chicago land area?

Help the community by answering this question:


Get yourself pre approved an let a profeesional tell you whatyour options are.
Contrary to popular belief, banks are lending. FHA loans can be obtained for as little as 3.5% down and Conventional loans can be obtained for as little as 5% down.

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

First time home buyers could qualify for 3.5% down payment with FHA loans. I can refer you to several loan officers you can choose from that can help you with your quest.
