Home buyers in Raleigh, NC have some new mortgage options that are available up to 95% loan to value. These programs are especially helpful for home buyers that have limited down payments, or just don’t want to put down 10, 15 or 20% required by many lenders and banks. The best part is many of the 5% and 10% down jumbo options do not require monthly mortgage insurance (PMI)
