The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) has been assisting Michigan families with homeownership for over 51 years.
MSHDA now offers down payment assistance to Michigan families through an interest-free loan for down payment assistance.
On October 16th, 2017 MSHDA announced their down payment assistance program historically limited to FHA, RD and Rural Development financing will now be available with 3% down conventional financing.
There are several important advantages that conventional lending provides over what has been traditionally offered with MSHDA down payment assistance. Including:
• No up-front mortgage insurance and potentially lower monthly mortgage insurance than FHA (based on credit score).
• Faster Appraisals – FHA appraisals typically take longer than a conventional appraisal.
• Mortgage insurance may be removed at some point in the future (FHA is for the life of the loan).
• Borrowers may qualify for income-based student loans payments instead of 1% of the balance that FHA requires.
Mortgage 1 continues to be the #1 MSHDA lender in Michigan for 5 consecutive years. Please contact our office for more information.
