Jumbo Mortgage Loans in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin with Only 5% Down - Posted September 24, 2014

Jumbo Mortgage Loans in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin with Only 5% Down

United Home Loans has just introduced a jumbo mortgage loan with only 5% down.  So, if you are purchasing a property in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota or Wisconsin and the price is $680,000 or less, we can provide a mortgage at a loan to value of 95%.  This jumbo mortgage loan requires excellent credit (scores of 740 or higher) and proof that you have sufficient income to cover the mortgage payments.  In addition, the property must be your primary residence.

The 5% down option is available for loan amounts to $650,000.  Available jumbo loan programs are the 10/1, 7/1 and 5/1 ARMs.  Basically, that means the interest rate is fixed for 10, 7 or 5 years respectively and then adjusts on an annual basis.  Contact our office for specific ARM parameters such as the margin, index and interest rate caps.

Reasons to Only Put Down 5%

Some buyers may cringe when they read this and think this loan program is too aggressive.  However, there are a few good reasons why a borrower may want to only put down 5% even if they have more saved.  Some of them are as follows:

Funds for remodeling – let’s face it, some homes need updating; by only putting down 5%, you can save the rest of your money for needed remodeling or other improvements.

Lack of funds due to sale of current residence – while the real estate market has seen a marked improvement, home values in some Midwest markets are still 15% to 20% below their all-time highs; so if you are making a lot less on the sale of your current residence, this program helps you get into a new home now to take advantage of low interest rates and home prices that are still below their all-time highs set way back in 2006.

Keeping funds in other investments – check with you financial advisor first but sometimes, it makes sense to put less down and keep your money working for you; obviously, the stock market has been on a tear lately.

Down Payment Requirements

Below is a list of down payment requirements for jumbo loan programs offered by United Home Loans.  There could be exceptions to these so please contact our office for specific up to date information (example: we will occasionally lend more than $1,000,000 with down payments of only 10%). 

Down Payment                   Maximum Loan Amount                 Minimum Credit Score                    Occupancy

5%                                               $650,000                                               740                                    Primary

10%                                            $1,000,000                                             740                                    Primary

20%                                            $2,000,000                                             700                                    Primary
