Fannie Mae announced this week that, beginning June 1, it would lower down payment requirements from 5% to just 3% for all conventional, conforming mortgages processed through its Desktop Underwriter® automated underwriting system. Loans processed outside the Desktop Underwriter® system will still require a 5% down payment.
