Personally I dont see the benefit of going Conv with 3% down.

Rates are higher going Conv. and you still paying PMI.

The rate alone probably cost you 25-75 a month for the duration of the loan.

Re: 3% down conventional mortgage lenders

I don't qualify for NACA due to the price of the home being above max limit in my area.  

 

I'm looking for a 3% down conventional because I'm going to pay off my car note to lower my DTI, and that will cut into my savings for the downpayment.

If you have less then 10 months left on the car note it wont be included in your DTI.

Re: 3% down conventional mortgage lenders

Naca is a company that works with you to get you a loan to buy a house.

If they are available in your area its a good program, just isnt very fast.

Re: 3% down conventional mortgage lenders

How much you put down is really dependent on you.

Sometimes we have to put minimum down, because of finances, and other responsibilities. We all been there.

If was me I would put minimum 5% and pay PMI upfront.
Good Luck
