New Conventional 1% Down Mortgage5.31.2017

Mortgage Options, Inc. is excited to announce its new mortgage program now available to prospective home buyers – the 1% down conventional loan! We’re one of the first independent mortgage companies in the country to offer this loan, which provides eligible homebuyers with a 2% lender-paid down payment in addition to the 1% down, giving you a 3% equity boost at closing.

Who is eligible for the Conventional 1% Down Program?

This 1% down program is perfect for home buyers who want to save money on their down payment, keeping more money in their pockets. Homebuyers must have a strong credit score – a minimum FICO score of 700 – and a maximum debt-to-income ratio of 43%.

The 1% down program is a new alternative to the 3% down programs that Mortgage Options, Inc. already offers. We are one of the first independent mortgage companies in the U.S. to offer a 1% payment option in the form of a conventional loan, as opposed to a government-backed mortgage.

Benefits of the 1% Down Loan

  • You put down 1%, your lender contributes 2%*, giving you 3% equity at closing
  • Great low rates
  • Close in 30 days or less
  • Conventional 30-year fixed program
  • Available with no monthly Mortgage Insurance 

*2% lender contribution may only be applied to down payment
