“Big Home” Budget But No Big Down Payment?  No Problem!

The DC metro area is known as a high-cost area for homebuyers since prices tend to be higher in many sought-after neighborhoods. And getting a loan for a home in these areas can be difficult and costly.

That’s why this new opportunity for 5% down on jumbo loans is good news for many buyers looking for either a lovely single-family home for themselves or if they’re thinking of investing in 2-4 unit properties.

Keep in mind that any loan amount over $679,650 in the DC metro area is considered a “jumbo” loan.

It’s now easier and more affordable, especially with higher Loan to Value (LTV) ratios!

Here’s the breakdown:

  • 5% down up to a loan amount of $2,000,000 – requires 740 FICO and 95% LTV ratio.
  • 10% down up to $3,000,000 – requires 740 FICO and 90% LTV ratio.
  • Mortgage insurance not required.
  • 5% down on 1-4 unit properties.
  • Only 9 months of payment reserves required
  • Interest-only options available at 10% and greater down payments.
