The dream of home ownership may be within your reach. Fulton Mortgage Company, a Division of The Columbia Bank, has recently introduced our HomeReady® Mortgage Plus Program to make home ownership more accessible for homebuyers in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
It’s a smart and affordable alternative to an FHA or conventional loan because it requires no Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). The HomeReady Mortgage Plus Program is a true no mortgage insurance program and is exclusive to Fulton Mortgage Company. Other lenders may offer similar programs, but they usually require mortgage insurance or lender-paid mortgage insurance which adds to your cost.
This flexible new program can provide up to 97% financing on loan amounts up to $453,100 and 95% financing on loan amounts up to $679,650. Plus, you don’t need to be a first-time homebuyer and co-borrowers on a HomeReady Mortgage Plus Program are not required to live in the home, so relatives and other individuals may assist with your home purchase. The HomeReady Mortgage Plus Program features:
- 97% Financing to $453,1001
- 95% Financing to $679,6501
- 3% to 5% down payment
- Purchases and/or rate and term refinances for up to 97% of the property’s appraised value
- 30 Year Fixed Term2
- Loan to value up to 105% in combination with a down payment assistance program
- Seller contributions allowed up to 3% of the purchase price of the home
- Homebuyer Education is required3
- The HomeReady Mortgage Plus Program is available to applicants with incomes below 100% of the area median income or maximum income of $110,300, unless the property is located in an underserved census tract then the income restriction is waived
