There ARE Alternatives to FHA Financing.
Ask Me About My
"Home Possible" Mortgage Option!
Although FHA perhaps remains the most reliable First-Time Homebuyer Program currently available, it may no longer be the only or best option for certain qualified Borrowers.
With the current costs of upfront Mortgage Insurance and the increased costs of Annual Mortgage Insurance, I have sought alternative options for my Borrowers in the Conventional Financing environment. I currently have a great option available for my clients.
The chart below shows how I (via APMC) have applied this program ... known as "Home Possible" to the benefit of my clients. (Freddie Mac's Flexible Underwriting Program)

FHA Mortgage Home
Borrowers utilizing the "Home Possible" Mortgage Program will find it addressing a broader variety of their needs and offering them more flexible options. They'll also find that in certain factors, Underwriting Guidelines are more favorable than those offered through FHA. And generally speaking, Monthly Payments are typically lower when utilizing the "Home Possible" program.
The "Home Possible" Mortgage Program also offers:
- Comparable out-of-pocket costs
- Allows for Borrower's Cash at Closing needs (typically included in a Conventional, Low-Down Payment Program)
- Flexible Down Payment Funds feature
- Allows for flexible "Cash on Hand" too
I must add that not all Borrowers qualify for this program. Nor would their buying scenario, in certain cases.
The "Home Possible" Mortgage Program is an option to be considered and weighed, just like other Mortgage Program options ... not a guaranteed loan approval. Median Income Limits Apply. This program is NOT for Investors or those who own other Real Estate properties.
The good news is this: "Outside the Box" Mortgage financing opportunities DO exist. The "Home Possible" Mortgage Program is just one example of that fact.
