Down Payment Assistance
When you buy a home, you’ll usually have to put money down that’s equal to a percentage of your home’s final purchase price. This is called your down payment. The amount you’ll need will vary and some mortgage programs require no down payment at all. While there are variations, coming up with this cash is often a difficult hurdle for buyers.Down payment assistance comes in the form of grants, loans and other programs. It’s typically reserved for first-time home buyers only. They can be run by a variety of organizations, such as your local or state housing authority, or by a nonprofit.
Eligibility is determined by your household income and credit history, varying by state and program. An application is typically needed, and sometimes you’re also be required to attend training or home buyer education on the mortgage process and maintaining finances. *

Jumbo mortgage loans are loans that surpass the conforming loan limit, which is the maximum loan amount subject to guarantee by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.Conforming loan limits are set by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) that buy a large portion of mortgages made in the U.S. from lenders and resell them on the secondary market to investors. These limits help lenders make more loans available to borrowers, since the lender can now sell them to the GSEs, mitigating risk if the borrower can’t repay. Loans outside of the conforming loan limits, including jumbo loans, are riskier for lenders.
