New Loan Program – 10% Down up to $2.2m in Price with No MI!

Yes…You heard right! 

We now have a program that will allow a buyer with a mid fico score of 740 or higher to purchase a home up at $2.2m in price at just 10% down with no MI.   In addition, we can underwrite these loans in-house at our office with a complete credit package to fully preapprove a client before they make an offer.  This would allow them, to make an offer, not contingent upon the loan approval (not including appraisal and inspection).  With a complete credit package this can be done within 2 to 3 business days (sometimes sooner).

This is a game changer for those that have always been told they need 20% down or more to purchase at this price point and to avoid mortgage insurance (also known at MI or PMI).  In addition, for the client that has 20% down, now they only need to put 10% down invest the other 10% into the stock market or keep available for another property purchase or remodel.

(In some cases, the lender will also allow 15% down up to $3.52m in price or $3m in loan, but this approval over $2m in loan amount, would need to go to the investor taking us 1 week or more to obtain the loan approval for a no loan contingent offer.  This is why getting preapproved is so important, especially as the market changes/demand increases on home purchases.

About Rates…

Currently the rate on the 10% down program is at 6.5% (APR 6.71) at 1 Point on a 30 year fixed or 6.25% at 1 point on the 7/1 ARM (fixed for 7 years but amortized over 30 years).

If you would like to get preapproved for the above, please let us know.
