As a special purpose affordability lender and home builder, we participate in certain programs that help keep the homes affordable to qualified buyers. These programs sometimes come with requirements that are in addition to our typical program requirements. This home has the following requirements due to third-party funding sources:
Your loan may or may not be reduced by an amount equivalent to $10 per hour for every hour you volunteer on a construction site while in the program. (Requirement to be confirmed.)
Your mortgage will include a 5-year recapture agreement. This states that if you move out or sell your home within the first five years, you will be responsible for paying approx. $6,000. This is removed in its entirety after five years.
Your qualifying household income cannot exceed 60% of AMI at closing.
