LOAN PROGRAM FOR FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYERS
THE COLORADO HOUSING AND FINANCE AUTHORITY (CHFA) announced the rollout of a new home mortgage loan program for first-time homebuyers, qualified veterans, and non-first time buyers in targeted areas. The 30-year, fixed-rate loan program is called CHFA FirstSteps and is expected to offer a lower interest rate compared to other Federal Housing Administration programs due to its unigue financing structure.
For those struggling to save up for up-front costs associated with homebuying, CHFA FirstStep Plus offers an assistance option. Those eligible can borrow a second mortgage for up to 5 percent of the first mortgage loan amount to help pay for down payment, closing, or other prepaid costs.
Those who have a minimum 620 FICO credit score and meet the program's income and purchase price limits may be eligible. Learn more and find a CHFA participating lender at www.chfainfo.com/homeownership.
