If you are looking for a government-backed loan, the answer is no. Investors have more strict guidelines. FHA loans allow 3.5% down for an owner-occupied property. As an investor you likely have to put down 20%.

HI Maria: The Fannie Mae Homepath program offers lots of options but they certainly differ, depending on whether you are an owner occupier or an investor.

Take a look at their website: and you'll find all the answers to your questions there.

Best of luck!

Hi Mariia,
This is a homepath first look property, which means that a person that is going to ocuppy the home will have the first shot, and that period lasts 2 weeks.
2 weeks have passed on this property and it shows available, which could mean they have offers and are still woriking with them to see if they are fully qualified or they are now taking offers from investors or second homem purchasers. If you are interested, please contact me and I will get the answers for you. You will need to show your mortgage approval or proof of funds for the offer, which I can help you obtain if neccessary.
