CapEd Home Affordable Mortgage Program (CHAMP) is designed to meet the needs of first time home buyers. This exciting program requires only 3%* down, which can be from their own funds or gift funds. This program allows for a non-occupying co-borrower. Loan approval is subject to program underwriting guidelines.
Quick overview of the program:
- Purchase transaction
- 3% down payment
- Occupying borrower must be a first time homeowner (First time homeowner is defined as a person or persons who have not owned a home in the last three years)
- Gift funds are allowed
- 2 months reserves after closing is required
- Property restrictions apply
- Manufactured housing is not allowed
- Maximum acreage: 10 acres
- Occupying borrower may petition CapEd to remove the non-occupying borrower from the loan and title to the property after a period of 36 months from the note date. Occupying borrower must still occupy the property, have missed 0 x 30 (delinquency) on existing loan, and fully qualify under the terms of this program by themselves with regards to income, debt-to-income and credit.
*All loans subject to approval. Rates as low as 5.201% APR. Rates, terms, and conditions are subject to change and vary based on creditworthiness, qualifications, and collateral conditions. A $150,000 loan at 4.625% and corresponding APR of 5.201% would have payments of $864.96 per month. Contact CapEd at 208-884-0150 or 800-223-SAVE (7283) for more information.
