We’re excited to offer Freddie Mac BorrowSmartSM program for a special limited-time opportunity!!


The Freddie Mac BorrowSmartSM program provides assistance for income-qualified borrowers to be used towards the down payment or closing costs required to finance a home. Theprogram can provide up to $2,500 in down payment/closing cost assistance based on area median income (AMI) and other eligibility criteria. It may be used to cover 100% of funds needed to close.

BorrowSmartSM program is designed to work with two other Freddie Mac mortgage programs; Home Possible® and HomeOne® which requires as little as 3% down.

Home Possible® offers more options and credit flexibilities for low income to very low income clients to help them realize the American dream of homeownership.

 HomeOne®  Available to qualified first-time homebuyers for a low down payment of just 3%, the Freddie Mac HomeOne® mortgage is a low down payment option that serves the needs of many first-time homebuyers, along with no cash-out refinance borrowers.
