Sonymae v. FHA down payment

Asked by crisd21, New York, NY Tue Sep 11, 2012

DH and I were pre-approved for an FHA loan but we are hopefully (fingers crossed) when the time comes going to be approved for a sonymae loan. With a Sonymae loan buyer only has to put 3% down but with an FHA its 3.5% my question is if I make an offer on a house and have to inform the seller of my down payment can I put 3.5% and then in the event we are approved for a sonymae loan can I change that number to 3%? I hope I made some sense..... feeling a little overwhelmed here. TIA
