We’ve had a lot of buyers ask us lately about nontraditional loan programs. Many of these buyers were interested in programs that would allow them to submit a lower-than-average down payment and, thankfully, there are plenty of options like this out there.
State Housing, for example, has a new conventional loan product that allows first-time and move-up buyers to put either 3% or 5% down. Traditional State Housing also offers $6,000 in down payment assistance for those who need some extra help.
And, of course, there’s always the standard conventional loan, which allows buyers to enjoy lower PMI and interest rates while putting just 3% down on a home.
About 10 years ago, the lending industry greatly tightened its standards. This left many feeling uncertain as to whether they would be able to afford a home moving forward. However, as these three loan options prove, the homeownership dream is still well within reach, even for those with financial concerns.
