FannieMae's HomeReady™ Mortgage Program may be your ticket to home ownership!
Fannie Mae has launched a new First Time Home Buyers program called HomeReady designed to encourage home ownership. This great new loan program is designed to compete with FHA.
There are many benefits for a borrower using HomeReady mortgages. Besides that it is accessible and the financing is practical here are a few more borrower benefits:
Income limits are set by geographical areas. In underserved areas, there are no income limits. In more economically developed areas, Fannie Mae has limited the amount of money HomeReady applicants can make. This policy ensures the program is reserved for the ones who need it most. The following is a breakdown of income limits.
If the borrower makes more than this, he or she could find a home in a more underserved area with no income limit. Upon a successful home search, he or she could use HomeReady.
Fannie Mae has published HomeReady eligibility maps for each state that detail each geographical area. Here are a few of the published maps. It can be difficult to see the exact boundaries. Be sure to check the property address of the home you want to buy and your income with your lender.
HomeReady Minimum Credit Scores
One aspect of this loan that is not super flexible is the credit score requirement. This program requires fairly good scores to qualify. Still, borrowers don't have to have perfect credit.
Fannie Mae requires a score between 680 and 700 to qualify.
Have a low credit score? A HomeReady borrower who puts 25% down may qualify with a score as low as 620.
While credit score requirements are high, borrowers can raise their scores by fixing errors and outdated information with some credit help.
But for now, this program is ideal for buyers with a good credit history but don't quite fit inside the traditional lending box when it comes to their down payment and income sources.
