FHA Mortgage (low down payment) for new house

Asked by Alex R, Pennsylvania Thu Mar 24, 2011

Hello - I have excellent credit (750 ) and a high income and I own my home, on which I have a noted underwritten by the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA). I am looking for my next primary residence, but would like to keep my existing property and put down a low down payment (4-5% of property value) on the new house.

Since I put down only 3% on my 1st property, when I acquire my next primary residence can I still get away with putting down a low down payment (4-5%)

You can get a 10% down investor loan on a 2nd house thru Fannie Mae Foreclosure wensite called HOMEPATH. That's the best downpay for a 2nd or investor I know of today that has a competitive interest rate.

Check with your mortgage lender and ask them if you qualify for any available mortgage products that offer low down payments.
