They are designed for low to moderate-income homebuyers and offer affordable down payment requirements.

Private Mortgage Insurance

One of the amazing benefits of the Home Possible Mortgage is that you can request the removal of your private mortgage insurance when your loan to value reaches 80%. Additionally, the private mortgage insurance cancels itself automatically when your outstanding balance is 78% of the appraised value!

Income Limits

To be eligible for Home Possible or Home Possible advantage programs, your income cannot exceed the Area Median Income where the property is located except when the property is located with in a designated high-cost or undeserved area.

There is no borrower income limit in rural or undeserved areas.

If you need help determining whether or not you, or the property you're interested in are eligible for the home possible loan program, please reach out to one of our Loan Officers or you can use Freddie Mac’s income and property eligibility tool.

Education

Any borrower who will be on the mortgage who are first-time homebuyers must take a free homeownership course before the loan closing. The course is available online or in-person. You can get more information on this course from your Flat Branch Loan Officer!
