Fannie Mae conventional 97, which allowed a very low 3% downpayment is going away today and the new downpayment required will be 5%.
The 3% downpayment could have come as a gift, from a blood or by-marriage relative, and should be the case with the new 5% requirement. The guidelines are less-restrictive than an FHA loan; rates are usually better than FHA and mortgage insurance is less. If you are sitting on the fence and planning on qualifying for the conventional 97, you may want to call you lender today and submit your application to underwriting. The downpayment requirement goes up November 16th.
This conventional 97 loan was backed by the government and offered via Fannie Mae only.
Call Dean with your questions about low downpayment loan options for purchasing real estate in steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Steamboat Springs is a family friendly town resulting in a demand for rentals with 5 or more bedrooms according to Michael at Steamboatescapes.com .
If you have a large family, lots of friends, or travel in groups, then you have probably run up against the challenge to find a place with quality finishes and great location offering a shuttle to the slopes that won’t break the bank.
The fee charged for rentals can be a sticker shock because the cost to puchase one of these homes exceeds $1,000,000 for the most part. As of the date of this real estate blog, there are only 7 homes / townhomes in the mountain area near the ski slopes of Steamboat Ski Resort with 5 or more bedrooms priced under $1,000,000. Most of the 7 need some work with the exception of a spectacular property located above the Rolling Stone Golf Course and appropriately named Eagles Overlook - priced now at $669,000 to sell fast.
Eagles Overllook HOA pays the gas bill for snow melt, shovels your deck, maintains the elevators and saves for capital improvements.
Come to ski or golf and don’t worry about working on your home while here. If you want to offset the cost of owning your home, potential for rentals income is very attractive at Eagles Overlook and cash flow is much better than many of the luxury townhomes closer to the slopes.
For more info on Eagles Overlook or other homes near Steamboat Skiing and Golf, call Dean at 970-846-8284
