Can You Get A Gift On A Conventional Loan?…

Good Morning!

 

If you have been following my posts you have probably learned that you can get a gift from a relative for your down payment on an FHA loan.

Many don’t realize this, but you can also use a gift for a conventional loan down payment!

The guidelines have changed on this in the past few years. It used to be if the loan to value ratio was over 80% the borrower could get a gift for down payment, but the borrower still had to bring 5% of their own
funds.

…That’s not the case any more!

A borrower can get a gift from a relative for the entire down payment on a conventional loan – it doesn’t matter if it’s 5% down or 25% down. …it can all be a gift!

…and, they don’t have to bring any of their own funds in the transaction.  

That’s it for today!
Have a good day today!  …and thanks for reading.
