Dude thanks for the advice. But you didn't answer my question.

My household income is 100,000 a year and our rent is currently $1,200. We
can afford a house we just don't have a big chunk for a down payment.

My question was can I get a loan as a first time homebuyer with 5% down and
what are the implications if I do?

Can you use your wit and knowledge to answer this and not condescend to me
like I am an idiot?
