End of 80/20 financing?

Are we seeing the end of the 80/20 – financing with 0% down and no closing costs? Well we might be for people with marginal credit. What I mean by marginal credit is anyone less than 640. Especially if these individuals are self-employed and are not able to adequately substantiate their incomes. In these cases we’ve often employed the “stated” income loan. However with Wall Street balking at these low documentation loans made out to people with marginal credit I think lenders will swing towards more traditional credit guidelines.
