Home Possible is a mortgage product offered by Freddie Mac, a government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) that provides funding for the U.S. mortgage market. Home Possible is designed to help low- and moderate-income borrowers, as well as those with limited cash for down payment, purchase a home.
Some key features of Home Possible include:
Low down payment options: Borrowers can make a down payment as low as 3% of the purchase price.
Flexible credit standards: Borrowers with non-traditional credit sources, such as rental payments or utility bills, may be able to qualify for a Home Possible loan.
Income from non-borrowers: Income from non-borrowers, such as roommates or extended family members, can be used to qualify for a loan.
Community seconds: Home Possible loans may be combined with a second loan from a local government or nonprofit organization, which can provide additional funds for down payment and closing costs.
Energy-efficient upgrades: Home Possible loans can be used to finance energy-efficient upgrades to a home, which can help lower monthly utility bills.
Home Possible loans are available for the purchase or refinance of single-family homes, as well as certain manufactured homes, condominiums, and townhomes. The loan terms and conditions may vary depending on the location of the property and the borrower's financial profile.
