Options for Down PaymentsWhen looking at your mortgage options, often the first place to focus is the down payment requirement.

Depending on the program, you can also receive gifts towards the down payment or work with a local program for assistance with the payment.
Down Payment FAQs
How much do I need for a down payment?
The down payment required varies based on what program you qualify for and what mortgage arrangement you choose. Currently, FHA loans will allow as little as 3.5% down and VA loans allow 0% down. Other loan arrangements that include Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) or subordinate financing can also greatly reduce the down payment required. Cambria Mortgage consultants can discuss all these options with you.
