  1. You Need 25% Down to Finance a Condo.

    • Many major lenders restrict condo financing BUT…

      • Although FHA financing is generally not available, conventional loans with as little as 1-3% down can be used to purchase most condos as a primary residence

      • The condo association must carry adequate insurance for replacement value, have no major pending litigation against the association and have collect reserves of 10% of gross revenue in their yearly budget.  Other less likely restrictions may also apply.

 

  1. You Need a 660 Credit Score for Mortgages with Less than 20% Down

    • It’s not unusual for many lenders to set higher credit score requirements BUT…

      • Conventional financing is available with 5% down with a 620 credit score

      • FHA financing with 3.5% is available with a 580 score

 

  1. You Need to Wait 4-7 Years after a Bankruptcy, Short Sale or Foreclosure

    • Conventional and FHA loans require those waiting periods BUT…

      • Non-Prime loans require no waiting period with 20% down

      • With 10% down the waiting period is only 12 months

      • Rates are higher but it’s a perfect loan to buy now before prices go higher and refinance later
