In addition, a displaced homemaker or a single parent may also be considered a First-Time Homebuyer if the individual had no ownership interest in a residential property during the preceding three-year period other than an ownership interest in the marital residence with a spouse. If a displaced homemaker or a single parent solely owned the marital residence, or solely or jointly owned a second home or investment property, the individual may not be considered a First-Time Homebuyer.

Mortgage Refinance Program

Refinance your current home to potentially lower your rate!

In many cases, homeowners refinance to take advantage of lower market interest rates, cash out a portion of their equity, or to reduce their monthly payment with a longer repayment term.

There are many reasons to refinance:

  • If you’re looking to pay off your loan quicker with a shorter term.
  • If you want to convert a variable loan rate to a fixed, and obtain a lower interest rate.
  • You want to refinance your home into a loan without mortgage insurance.
  • You’re looking to utilize a cash-out refinance.
