You will be evaluated by your lender at a mortgage interest rate of 4.84% as per the new stress test requirements.
We give a hand-up, not a hand-out.
Our award-winning model offers you a Down Payment Loan that is payment-free until you sell or move. We boost your down payment of 5% by 10% to 15% of the purchase price of your new home to help you secure a conventional mortgage, and since the amount is lower, this makes your monthly carrying costs lower too.
When you move, the loan gets paid back plus some appreciation. If the loan towards your down payment was 10% to 15%, now 10% to 15% of the current home value is due back.
You may be eligible for an additional $25,000 to further boost your down payment if you’re a first-time buyer.
The Options Down Payment Loan is available to anyone who wants it, regardless of income or whether they have previously owned a home. The only requirements are that you have a 5% down payment, qualify and secure a mortgage from a primary lender and plan to live in your Options home.
You can choose to take a loan worth 10% to 15% of the purchase price of the home. When you sell or rent your home (or anytime before that if you choose), you repay 10% to 15% of current market value of your home. This is why it's called a shared appreciation loan. The repaid loans go into a “pay-it-forward” fund, which is used to provide seed funding for communities that make homeownership possible for even more families and individuals. The Options Down Payment Loan is a second mortgage issued through our funding partner, Home Ownership Alternatives (HOA).
No. We only offer the Down Payment Loan for Options for Homes developments.
