My Community Loan Programs
Loans under the My Community Initiative offer home buyers and home owners fewer eligibility restrictions, and several loan options. These programs are often great for first time homebuyers.
The My Community Loan Programs also allow for reduced PMI premiums in some cases as well. This reduces your monthly mortgage payment significantly if you qualify.
MyCommunity Mortgages are also available for refinance loans in which only the Rate and Term of the loan is changed with less than $2,500 cash out.
My Community programs offer much more flexible underwriting guidelines, especially in regards to credit score and down payment requirements. The My Community Loan Programs offer 100% and 97% loan to value programs, which means that they have 0 down and 3% down programs available. These programs usually do not require any borrower contributions of money put into the transaction which many other conforming programs will require at least $500 of the borrower's own funds.
To qualify for a MyCommunity mortgage, the borrowers' income may not exceed the program's income limit. However, for homes located in neighborhoods designated as "underserved," there is no income limit.
MyCommunity mortgage programs are avilable with a variety of options which are designed to address several of the most common obstacles homeowners face when buying a home:
