What you’ll need to consider:

  • Loans are available in select states (AL,AR, DE, FL, GA, MD, MS, NC, SC, TN, VA, WV, DC and select counties in PA). Other program and geographic restrictions may apply, please consult your loan officer for details.
  • State law may put further restrictions on maximum loan-to-value ratio
  • Adjustable-rate mortgages have interest rates that may increase during the life of the loan
  • 100 percent mortgage financing will result in no property equity until the borrower pays down the loan principal through regular mortgage payments and/or the property value appreciates
  • A down payment may be required if the property is located in a declining market. If property values decline, you could owe more than your property's value.
