CalHFA 1st mortgage + CHDAP 2nd mortgage = 99% LTV or 1% downpayment loan for San Jose, CA  First Time Home Buyers.

Here's the Full Details:

CalHFA (California Housing Finance agency) FHA loan lend money up to 96.5%. California Homebuyer's down payment assistance program (CHDAP) provides a deferred payment junior loan (2nd mortgage) up to 3% of the purchase price; 2.5% of which can be utilized for  downpayment and the rest .5% can be used towards closing cost. See below:

How to qualify for CalHFA FHA loan and the Downpayment Assistance Program:

  • The individual who requires the assistance should be a Firt Time Home Buyer. A First Time Home Buyer is someone who has not possesed or occupied a house in last 3 years.
  • A minimum deposit of 1% is needed from your own funds - can be a gift from someone close to you.
  • You need to meet moderate income limits established for the county in which you are purchasing.
  • You need to meet Sales Price Limits for the county in which the property is located.

CalHFA Loan Interest Rates:

Currently, the interest rate on CalHFA FHA loan first mortgage is 4.25% and if you combine that with CHDAP as the 2nd mortgage the interest rate goes down to 4.125%. This is significantly lower than the prevailing rates for both FHA and Conventional mortgages for San Jose, CA  properties.
