Reputable hard money lenders are not going to accept a 5% down payment. They need a minimum of 20%. Few hard money lenders lend on owner occupied properties now due to recent government regulations. Any lender who would accept a 5% down payment would have sky-high interest rates, points and require an equity stake, which wouldn't work in an owner occupied situation.

we are dealing with one at 5% for investment/re-hab properties but having a problem with owner occupied. Just scanning thru the web to find some options or someone with very creative financing options. Income is there but cash is tied up with other properties at the moment but there is a deal out there with great potential.

If you find one that will do that... I will hammer them with so much business they will run out of money. Almost every Hard Money Lender I have ever seen wants to see no less than 25% down... Most want to be into a property for 65cents on the dollar...

We would all love you to death if you can find the Hard Money Lender that will lend to a Self Employed person for only 5% down...

I suspect you probably want to use private money, because most HM lenders won't do loans for more than 18 months, won't accept less than 10% down, and often won't lend directly to owner occupants.
