Buying a home is one of the most satisfying experience anyone can have. However, most people think you need a huge down payment in order to buy a home in Northern Virginia. This is simply not true in today’s real estate market. There are some great no down payment home loans available today to make your dream of home ownership come true. One of those great new programs is the VHDA Plus Second Mortgage program.
With the VHDA Plus Second Mortgage, prospective home owners are offered down payment assistance. As with most standard home loans, the program has a 30 year term. However, the VHDA Plus loan allows you to take out a second mortgage that is 3.5% of the sales price to use as the down payment.
If your credit score is below 680, you will be able to take out that second mortgage of 3.5% of the sales price for your down payment. If your credit score is above the second mortgage is 5% of the sales price. The good news is that the interest rates on both mortgage will be the same.
