Last week I discussed the 3% down payment Fannie Mae program and how that might impact borrowers.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have recently announced that they will begin backing conventional mortgages with as little as 3% down. This puts conventional mortgages into a new arena which they have not been in for almost 5 years, namely, the low down payment space.
