First Front Door

The First Front Door program helps open the door for first-time homebuyers. Widget works with the Federal Home Loan Bank to obtain grants that can be used for down payments and closing costs. Federal Home Loan Bank matches the qualified homebuyer's contribution for down payment and closing costs 3-to-1. For every $1 the homebuyer contributes, Federal Home Loan Bank will provide $3 in grant assistance, up to a maximum of $5,000.

To qualify for this program, you must:

  • Be a first-time homebuyer (not owned a home within the past three years)
  • Contribute personal funds as part of the down payment and closing costs
  • Have household income at or below 80% of the area median income at the time of registration
  • Complete at least four hours of homeownership counseling, including the topic of predatory lending, prior to the purchase of the home
  • If a student, work at least 30 hours per week

Fixed-Rate Mortgages

A fixed-rate mortgage is one of the most popular mortgages and has a fixed interest rate for the entire term of the loan. With a fixed-rate mortgage, homeowners will not have to contend with varying loan payment amounts that fluctuate with interest rate changes.

Adjustable Rate Mortgages

An adjustable-rate mortgage is a loan in which the interest rate periodically adjusts. The adjustment is based on an index which reflects the cost to the lender of borrowing on the credit markets.

Conventional Loans

Simply put, a conventional mortgage loan is a mortgage loan that is not a government loan, like FHA or VA. 

Refinances

If you feel you are paying too much in interest, want to pay off your mortgage sooner or need cash for home improvements, college or debt consolidation, then a refinance might be the perfect option for you. 

Jumbo Loans

A jumbo mortgage is a home loan with an amount that exceeds conforming loan limits imposed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two government-sponsored enterprises that buy mortgages from lenders.

FHA, PHFA, USDA & VA Mortgages

An FHA loan is a government insured loan. The insurance isn't like your homeowner's insurance. It is an insurance policy that protects the lender when there isn't much equity in the home. FHA is a great option when you have less than perfect credit and/or not a lot of cash for down-payment and closing. 

The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency works to provide affordable homeownership. PHFA offers a number of opportunities for Pennsylvania families to buy homes of their own. Qualification factors vary among programs and, in some cases, from county-to-county.

A USDA loan , also known as the USDA Rural Development Guaranteed Housing Loan Program, is a mortgage loan offered to rural property owners by the United States Department of Agriculture. 

A VA loan is a mortgage loan that is guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This loan is designed to offer long-term financing to eligible American veterans or their surviving spouses (provided they do not remarry).

  • FHA 203k is a government insured program to purchase and fix up a home that needs a little help.
