1% Down Mortgages

How The 1% Down Program Works?

By utilizing the One Percent Down Program first-time home buyers can now purchase a home with as low as 1% Down. The required down payment for a typical loan is 3% of the home’s sales price. With this program  the lender contributes the other 2% towards the down payment. This loan program is available to qualified first-time homeowners utilizing a conventional 30-year fixed rate loan mortgage.
