The real scoop on SONYMA, please.

Asked by happy2sday, Huntington, NY Fri Mar 27, 2009

We are looking to purchase our first home with minimal money down. I am curious to know more about SONYMA mortgages, other than what I have already read on their website. What are the real cons? To be able to put 3% down, have an additional loan for closing costs and the possibility of 40 year mortgage at a decent rate seems a little too good to be true. Is it?

The real CON is that it takes much longer to close than a traditional mortgage. Also depends which SONYMA mortgage you choose, Remodel takes longer and has many more hoops than Achieve the Dream.
