Maryland Mortgage Program
Are you a First Time Home Buyers in Prince Georges County? Are you tired of paying rent but don’t have enough money for the down payment for a home? The Maryland Mortgage program may be the right down payment assistance program for you.
Maryland Mortgage Program Details
The Maryland Mortgage program can be used for 1st-time homebuyers but also for non-first time home buyers! As expected the first home homebuyer program has more options and more assistance is given as opposed to the non-first time home buyer option. For first time home buyers utilizing the Maryland Mortgage Program, a loan of 5000.00 is given to the buyer, the $5,000 loan for the down payment and closing costs. This second lien has a zero percent interest rate, and no payments are due for the life of the first mortgage. As soon as the first mortgage ends (repayment, refinance, transfer, sale, etc.), the second lien is due and payable.
Maryland Mortgage Program Requirements
