HomeBuyer Boost is Back

Jan 30
Category | Prosperity News

At Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, we are committed to helping responsible, creditworthy buyers achieve the goal of homeownership. In 2017, we offered the HomeBuyer Boost program in which Prosperity clients qualified for closing cost assistance.

Now, we are excited to announce that we have extended the program to continue offering closing cost assistance for qualified, low-to-moderate income borrowers through August 31, 2018!  As before, the additional incentives are combined with a conventional loan with flexible terms, plus an additional Boost.  Take a look:

  • Low down payment available up to 97% financing for purchase of a primary residence (1-unit properties).
  • Flexible sources of funds can be used for the down payment and closing costs with no minimum contribution required from the borrower’s own funds (1-unit properties).
  • Income from all borrowers on the loan must be used to qualify. Income may not exceed 100% of the HUD area median income for the property’s location.1
  • Extended-income household may allow non-borrower income to be considered toward the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio when qualifying the borrower for the mortgage.2
  • Reduced Mortgage Insurance coverage requirements for loans with loan-to-values (LTV) greater than 90%, up to 97%.
  • Homeownership education helps buyers get ready to buy a home and be prepared for the responsibilities of homeownership.  The required training offers an easy-to-use, online course provided by Framework.


HomeBuyer Boost Incentives:

  • $1,000 program credit toward closing costs for clients who are at or below 80% of the area median income limit.3
  • $500 program credit to borrowers who get one-on-one homeownership education through a HUD-approved counseling agency prior to signing a purchase contract.4
  • Job loss protection for 2 years for eligible borrowers through MortgageAssureSM. This unemployment insurance can help cover up to 6 monthly mortgage payments in the event of an involuntary, unexpected job loss, to help borrowers avoid falling behind or defaulting on their mortgage.5
