5% down, they pay 50% of the PMI and the property has to be move-in ready. After reading some things from FAnnie Mae and other sites it looks like you don't have to put anything down. Can anyone give me more information on this type of loan. We live in Illinois and I'm not sure if rules.restriction vary from stsate to state, but I need clarification on this type of loan. Please help!

My Community can be a bit different betwen lenders as they apparently negotiate seperately with Fannie Mae. I have a nice 2 page outline comparing My Comunity & Home Possible programs which both offer 100% LTV. Please let me know if you would like me to fax it to you. I also have a blog on my community you may find helpful.…

If you are in a declining market, or what is deemed a declining market by fannie mae you will have to put 5% down. If you are not in a declining market you can go 100% financing.

I know my community loans well. 100% is still available but could be going to 97% soon. The seller can pay closing cost. You need 500.00 into the transaction. Income limits are 74-76k???

Some of the FNMA & Freddie Mac loans are requiring 5% down due to the loan restructuring that is going on changing the LTV on their loans.
