1% Down Buys You A Home!

With 801-APPROVE you can buy a home with as little as 1% down and also get a down payment gift of up to a 2% ($5,000 max). We are excited to offer a conventional 1% down payment purchase loan with a lender gift of up to $5,000 to go towards your down payment. What’s more, there’s NO monthly mortgage insurance! This loan is hands down the best purchase loan for anyone looking to buy a home in Utah with a minimal down payment. You don’t need to be a first-time homebuyer.

It’s simple. Here’s how it works:
1. You put down as little as 1%
2. You get up to a 2% down payment gift (max gift of $5,000)
3. You have 3% equity in your home at closing

Down payments are the biggest obstacle to homeownership. Most people can afford a mortgage payment. Coming up with a 3-5% down payment is the hard part. Your 1% down payment can be a gift from a family member, or come from your own funds. The seller can cover your closing costs up to 3% of the purchase price. So you can literally buy a home without any of your own money. You should never do an FHA loan when you can get a conventional loan with just 1% down and NO monthly mortgage insurance. Stop building your landlord’s equity and start building your own! You’ll get a 2% gift of equity ($5,000 max) to get you started.
