Learn How a Flex Down Mortgage Can Work For you!
There are certain circumstances where saving for a down-payment is not a feasible option for clients. It can be challenging to put away such a large sum of money with the number of day to day costs people have. But as many people know, without a down payment, you can’t purchase a home, right? Not 100% true. We have worked with clients in the past to qualify them for a “Flex-Down” Mortgage product that allows clients to start building equity in their home, without having to save up for the down payment. Although a zero down payment mortgage does not exist, this type of mortgage product can allow you to pull your down payment from another credit source.

What is a Flex-Down Mortgage?
A Flex-Down Mortgage is a mortgage product that has a flexible down payment amount. There is still a down-payment required, but it will vary based on the property value.
- For a property valued under than or equal to $500,000, 5% down payment is required (sources available below)
- For a property valued at greater than $500,000 and less than $1,000,000 –5% down payment is required up to $500,000 with an additional 10% down payment on the portion of the home value above $500,000.
Flex-down mortgages can only be on first mortgages, not second or third or used in refinance situations. As noted above, the total property value has to be less than $1,000,000. This type of mortgage will also have insurance included with it—the premium will be lesser of the premium as a % of the total new loan amount or the premium as a % of the top-up portion additional loan based on the rates at that time.
Those that choose to go with this type of mortgage product will have to meet requirements, just like any other mortgage. There are a few specifications with this product:
- You must show that you have standard income and employment verification papers
- A credit score of 650 or higher is highly recommended
- You must have no previous bankruptcies
- Some lenders may still require you to have some of the down payment from your own resources
Those considering this type of mortgage are recommended to have very little debt and be able to accommodate the additional cost of higher mortgage insurance (due to the higher risk to the lender on this type of mortgage). Typically, the insurance premium would be 0.2% higher on a flex down mortgage.
Exceeded Our Expectations
Our son-in-law and his wife recommended your company to us. We are so thankful that they suggested your…
Mortgage Broker Company to us. The content of information that you provided to us for our refinance was absolutely fantastic, couldn’t have been handled any better. We had a couple of glitches that came up but Wrenetta took care of them immediately and brought our stress level back down. I don’t think we have ever had such a smooth flowing experience in attaining a new mortgage. This experience exceeded our expectations. Paul & I are extremely overjoyed and blessed to have worked with this company and especially Wrenetta Sinclair. Wrenetta dealt with every problem immediately and every time I emailed her, I had a response with minutes. We highly recommend Geoff Lee and GLM MORTGAGE GROUP to anyone looking for finance/refinance. Thank you so very much.

Geoff Knows What He Is Doing
Geoff knows what he is doing! I met Geoff earlier this year and I have been extremely impressed with…
his professionalism and dedication to his clients. If getting approved by the bank is challenging for you, Geoff can teach you what you need to do to get approved. He’s not about the sale, but helping people understand their options and teaching them what they need to do. If you like to get things done quick and painlessly Geoff at GLM Mortgage Group is your man!

Once you have checked off those boxes, then you are able to consider a Flex-Down Mortgage and move onto obtaining a source for the down payment. This is where the “Flex” in flex down comes in. A Flex Down Mortgage allows you to obtain your down payment through a credit source. This can include:
- A Credit Card
- Personal Line of Credit (not from the institution that Is funding the mortgage)
- Personal Loan (this can be from a family member, friend, etc. but the person must not be tied to the sale of the home)
This type of mortgage product can be an excellent option if you don’t quite have enough for the down payment. Are you interested in learning more about this mortgage product? Contact us and let us show you how a Flex mortgage can make the home of your dreams happen sooner than you think!
