Announcing HomeReady® PLUS

Exclusively offered by FM Lending Services

 

We are pleased to announce that FM Lending Services is offering several enhancements to the existing HomeReady® mortgage program. HomeReady® already has several terrific benefits including: 

  • Down payments as low as 3%
  • Innovative underwriting flexibility that allows the use of boarder income, non-occupant borrowers and extended family income to help borrowers qualify1
  • Lower interest rates and mortgage insurance premiums than a traditional mortgage

Now with HomeReady® PLUS, exclusively offered by FM Lending Services, qualified borrowers may receive:

  • A program credit of 1% of the loan amount toward closing costs that DOES NOT count toward the maximum interested 3rd party contributions2
  • An additional $500 program credit if borrower engages in one-on-one homeownership education prior to signing a sales contract (through a HUD approved counseling agency)2
  • Qualified borrowers may also be eligible for job loss protection for 2 years3

What does this mean for home buyers?

We know many home buyers face challenges that make homeownership seem unattainable, but HomeReady® PLUS can help make the dream of homeownership into a reality. In addition, combining HomeReady® PLUS with our FM Lending Services Buyer Advantage may give buyers an edge over others vying for the same property.
