On this week’s Mortgage Monday video show, Jim Cardinal and Alexis Meeks discuss the implications of receiving a mortgage down payment gift.

If you’re receiving a mortgage down payment gift, it doesn’t mean you have to use a FHA Loan. Choosing a conventional loan is fine; however, you must still meet the minimum 3% mortgage down payment.

Taxes and a Mortgage Down Payment Gift

Additionally, there are tax implications to the individual giving the mortgage down payment gift. Alexis explains what the limit of that mortgage down payment gift can be for tax purposes.
