Yes! We Do Government Loans

Yes!  We do government loans.  I was at a friend’s home on the 4th of July who asked me what the minimum down payment requirement is for a home purchase here in San Diego.  He was surprised to hear me say 3.5%.  He was even more surprised to hear that if an individual is VA eligible they can finance 100% of the purchase price.   While my friend is not a veteran he knows someone who is which means he qualifies for the best home loan anywhere.  You may not be a veteran who can qualify for a VA loan and you may not want an FHA loan so it’s important to know there are also conventional loan options that finance up to 95% of the purchase price and allow the 5% down payment to be gift funds virtually making this option 100% financing.  But wait, don’t be so quick to dismiss FHA.  Many times for those who have limited funds available for down payment FHA financing offers them more purchase power.
