HomeReady & Home Possible

Summary

The HomeReady mortgage by Fannie Mae and the Home Possible mortgage by Freddie Mac is a new enhanced affordable lending product. It is designed to compete directly against the FHA mortgage. One of the issues with using an FHA mortgage, especially in Hawaii, is there are very few condominiums eligible for FHA financing. With the HomeReady and Home Possible mortgage, any condominium that is eligible for Conventional financing is also eligible for these programs.

Features

  • You don't need to be a first-time home-buyer to be eligible for this loan. In fact, with HomeReady, you can own another property and still qualify. (Home Possible does not allow this).

 

  • Reduced Monthly Mortgage Insurance rates - 25% MI rate compared to 35% for Conventional loans. This makes down payments less than 10% much more affordable.

 

  • Also available with option to eliminate monthly Mortgage Insurance.

 

  • As an affordable loan program, there are reduced fees, lowering your closing costs compared to Conventional loans.

 

  • No Funding Fee or Up Front Mortgage Insurance Premium like VA, USDA, or FHA loans.

 

  • Non-Occupant Co-Borrowers are eligible with a minimum 5% down payment.

 

  • Flexible Income and Asset guidelines.

Requirements

  • For Primary Residence transactions only. Second Home and Investment properties ineligible.

 

  • 1-Unit Properties only. 2-4 Unit Properties ineligible.

 

  • Condominiums must be warrantable

 

  • Minimum FICO score of 620

 

  • Some properties may be located in an area subject to income limits. Borrowers purchasing properties in these areas must not make more than the stated income limit, per year. See eligibility maps below:
