Under the program, REDF beneficiaries, provide a down payment of 5% instead of the SAMA mandated 10% requirement for standard real estate financing. The REDF provides a guarantee equal to 5% of the property value. The maximum property value permitted under this program is SR 800,000.

If the required down payment is more than SAR 140,000, the beneficiary will pay the difference to obtain the financing. Eligible to all current active Military and Civilians age 50 and over.
