First-time buyer? Check out ONE Mortgage

National Homeownership Month finale: Thank you Lynn Housing Authority

Posted on June 30, 2016

BOSTON --- To conclude its celebration of National Homeownership Month, MHP's ONE Mortgage Program is recognizing Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development (LHAND) for helping low- and moderate-income first-time buyers purchase their first home.

So far in FY 2016, LHAND has provided pre-purchase, first-time homebuyer education to 21 ONE Mortgage homeowners. The average income of the ONE borrowers LHAND has served is $61,638.

Thank you LHAND for your continued commitment to Massachusetts first-time homebuyers and the ONE Mortgage Program.

About ONE Mortgage: Prosperous families. Stable and secure neighborhoods. Sound, private-sector loans that get repaid. That’s what ONE Mortgage delivers.

Since 1990, ONE Mortgage and its predecessor – the SoftSecond Loan Program – have helped more than 19,300 low- and moderate-income families purchase their first home and has delivered over $3.1 billion in below-market, private mortgage financing.

Offered by 34 lenders statewide and with more set to join shortly, ONE Mortgage is a 30-year, fixed-rate loan with a minimum 3 percent down payment (5 percent for three-family properties). State interest subsidies are used to reduce monthly payments in the early years of homeownership and then public funds are repaid by borrowers when they successfully sell their home or refinance out of the program. No mortgage insurance is required.
