Utah 1% Down Payment Loan

Home / Utah 1% Down Payment Loan

Do you have great credit, but not much of a down payment?

Utah low down payment loanFor once, that shiny 720+ credit score can help with something   ;-)

That’s right, eligible Utah borrowers can purchase a home with only 1% down payment. Even better, the lender will contribute 2% (up to $5,000) to boost your equity to 3% at the closing table.


Bid your landlord farewell, and welcome that new puppy into your family!
