Lenders Giving Away Farms To Generate Volume! 1% Down Loans!

Some extraordinarily advantageous mortgage offerings have surfaced in recent weeks.

This is for two reasons: (1) Lenders (or investors that buy loans) are desperate to generate volume; and (2) Lenders/investors are desperate to appease regulators by offering special financing to first-time homebuyers, particularly in economically oppressed areas.

1% Down Loans!

One of these new offerings is a 1% down loan – which is probably the most competitive loan offering we have ever seen, as the rates are low and there is NO PMI too!

It is effectively a 3% down loan, but the investor (that buys these loans) is offering a forgivable grant to cover 2% of the down payment.

THERE IS ONE HUGE CAVEAT THOUGH: The maximum loan amount is only $350,000.

So, in the Bay Area, this financing can only be used to buy … a bathroom, maybe (on a good day).

BUT – in Texas, the Central Valley and elsewhere, this is nothing short of awesome!

So awesome in fact that we have already made a few dozen co-branded flyers for agents (so, if you are an agent and you’d like a flyer too, please let us know).

3% Down Loans With No PMI!

Another product that surfaced recently is a 3% down loan with low rates and NO PMI!

This loan is not quite as competitive as the 1% down loan above, but it at least has a much higher maximum loan amount of $726,200.

This loan is NOT available in Texas though for some reason, but it is available in all of the other states we are licensed.

And – it is great for condos and lower-priced areas in CA.

Both loans above (the 1% down and the 3% down) have income limits too, but they are pretty generous.
