Mortgage 1 offers multiple loan options designed to help first-time home buyers achieve the American Dream.
These loans are backed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). This type of loan may be more attractive to someone who has less than perfect credit. They require a down payment of at least 3.5% of the purchase price.
These loans are available to military veterans and active-duty service members (and their families) and are backed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). They do not required a down payment and may have more flexible credit requirements.
These loans are available to buyers in rural areas and are backed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). They do not require a down payment so this loan may be perfect for someone with less money saved.
These loans are not back by the government and may have stricter credit and down payment requirements. However, they often have lower mortgage insurance premiums and may be a good option for buyers with good credit and a down payment as low as 3% of the purchase price.
The MI State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) offers assistance programs for first-time home buyers, including down payment assistance zero-interest loans.
