You can purchase a home with a minimal down payment as low as 3% for conforming loan balances.

Here is a quick review of the Mortgage Process
1) First Meeting
During the first meeting or telephone call, we will give you an overview of general mortgage process.
2) Mortgage Qualification
Mortgage qualification depends on your Credit Score, Credit History, Income, Assets and Employment. Lenders interest rates are based on the risk profile of the borrower. The best credit allows you a lower down payment and lower mortgage rate.
Borrowers with recent credit issues may require larger down payment and a probable higher interest rate to compensate for the risk for default.
Compensating factors such as job stability and high asset balances after closing may offset risk.
Typically, your total housing payment (principal, interest, tax and insurance) should be <36% of your monthly gross income. Total monthly debt (housing payment plus credit card and installment loans) <43% of gross monthly income. We have programs that can go up to max 50% of gross monthly income dependent on compensating factors.
