New Downpayment Assistance Program!

New Downpayment Assistance Program!

image Wright Mortgage has a new program that provides up to 3% in down payment assistance, in the form of a non-repayable grant for FHA, VA and USDA 30-year fixed mortgage loan only. There is no repayment associated with this down payment assistance program.

The grant program may be applied against the borrower s down payment, closing costs and prepaids. This is a regular FHA loan but a new down payment assistance program.

The loan must be a owner-occupied home and the borrower must not own any rental property.

  • Program Requirements Income limits restricted by county

  • Purchase price maximum Government – $250,200 Conventional – $324


There’s no doubt about it – negotiating takes both finesse and confidence. It’s not for everyone, especially those of us who are passive. But when the times comes to purchase a new home and you’re sitting across the table from a home seller, buyers meek and confident alike must be able to hold their own in a negotiation. A skilled realtor can certainly help, depending on what’s on the table. Either way, the cost of backing down too soon could be too much to bear, literally.

  • Closing Costs

Not always negotiable fee-wise, but if the seller can pay them, see that they do. Transferring the cost to the seller will take a hefty up-front expense off of your loan.

  • Points

Buyers can have these point fees transferred to the seller, reducing the cost of the loan. Even when a seller pays these points, the borrower can still deduct them from their taxes.

New FHA Down Payment Program

New FHA Down Payment Program


The down payment program is a great program if you need funds for down payment for that new home. If you qualify for the program, you will be eligible to receive funds to cover a portion of your required down payment amount. The maximum amount of funds you can receive under the program is 2% of the purchase price of the home being purchased; you will still be required to pay any remaining amount of the required down payment yourself or with a gift from a family member.

  • One program used for all types of borrowers, with the same qualifications
  • Completely forgivable grant, equals 2% of purchase price
  • May be combined with up to 6% seller concession for closing costs
  • No resale or borrower repayment restrictions
  • No underwriting fee


For example, if you are purchasing a home with a purchase price of $150,000, the maximum amount of down payment assistance you can receive under the program is 2% of $150,000, or $3,000. If the required down payment amount is $5,250 (3.5% of $150,000), you would still be required to fund $2,250 yourself, or from a gift from a family member.

Income Restrictions:

The Borrower’s income (or, in the event of multiple Borrowers on a loan application, their income collectively) is equal to or less than 140% of the state or county median income regardless of family size based upon the state or county where the Security Property is located.

(Homebuyer education course or Pre-purchase counseling course) offered by an entity of the Borrower’s choice which is approved by HUD/FHA, either online or in person.
