My Community mortgage loan program

OneMortgageguy -   Have you or anyone else on the forum heard of this program?  Is it good?  The builders guy mentioned it as a possibility.

Thanks.  Any ideas on types of rates they give for the first time home buyer?

Re: My Community mortgage loan program

MCM is a program that I am currently using.  I have it coupled with a non-profit down payment assistance program through Colorado (CO Housing and Finance Authority).  Because my loan will actually be serviced through CHFA even though it is the MCM program, they set the % at 6.5. I am not sure what the rate would be otherwise.
 
So far so good for me, but I am not fully through the process yet.  You may want to check and see if you have any state first time buyer assistance or low/moderate income assistance programs.
 
I am happy to give you an update as to how it goes:smileyhappy:

Re: My Community mortgage loan program

I was told if I used this program, I was NOT allowed to have any DP assistance - is this mortgage person taking me for a ride - sounds like it if CO was able to do it.
 
I know I qualify for the MFHA DP, haven't done anything yet, waiting until Jan when car payment is no longer considered long term debt...
 
Thanks for the input!

For some qualified borrowers, the MCM programs allow "Community Seconds" as the ONLY form of subordinate financing. Community seconds are second liens that many cities, counties, states provide for underserved communities, low income borrowers, public servants, etc. for the buyer to have 97%, 100%, 103% financing.
