Are 3% Down Loans Going Away?

You may have heard that 3% down conventional loans are going away on November 16.  That's true, except when it's not.  Here's when it's not true:

The Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA) has a conventional loan program that only requires 3% down.  It will NOT go away on November 16.

Here’s what you need to know:
  • Only 3% down and the down payment can be a gift from a relative
  • There is no mortgage insurance
  • 30-year, fixed rate mortgage
  • This is for owner-occupied properties only
  • The borrower cannot own any other properties
  • No condos, but townhouses are OK
  • The borrower does NOT have to be a first-time homebuyer
  • Maximum purchase price in the Denver-Metro area is $375,000.  Boulder County is $417,000.
  • Maximum household income in the Denver-Metro area is $79,300 for a 1-2 person household and $91,100 for a 3+ person household.  Boulder County is $93,800 for 1-2 people and $107,800 for 3+ people.
The important thing to remember is that not every lender is approved by CHFA to sell these loans.  We are one of the lenders that is approved to sell 3% down loans, along with all kinds of other loans.  That's why we are some of the top producing lenders in Colorado.
