Affordable Loan Programs

Fremont Bank is proud to offer flexible mortgage products designed for homebuyers looking into more affordable mortgage options. Both options you will find here—the HomeReady® program and Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans—contain less stringent requirements that expand the eligibility to obtain and sustain homeownership. Now, borrowers who previously haven’t been able to qualify have more choices. If you’re looking for home financing with a lower down payment requirement, read on to find out if either option is a good fit for you. We’re happy to work with you every step of the way.

FHA Loans

FHA loans are designed to help homebuyers by offering low down payment options and flexible credit qualification. How is that possible? The FHA, a part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, insures the loan, so your lender can offer mortgages easier for first time homebuyers to qualify for. Down payments can be as low as 3.5% of the purchase price on a 1-4 unit properties.

FHA mortgage loans are available for home purchases and refinance both with fixed and adjustable-rates. FHA loans offer several key benefits unavailable with other loan products.

HomeReady® Loans

The HomeReady® program was created by Fannie Mae to address financial challenges experienced by many borrowers. Features of the program are designed to offer expanded eligibility for sustainable homeownership. First-time and repeat homebuyers can purchase a home with a down payment as low as 3% of the purchase price.

Other features include reduced mortgage insurance coverage requirements, flexible sources of income with no minimum contribution requirement from the borrower’s own funds on 1-unit properties and expanded debt-to-income ratios. This enhanced affordable loan is designed to meet the diverse financial needs of responsible, creditworthy borrowers.
