Low Downpayment Spin-Off Pilot Loosens Eligibility Requirements
September 30, 2016
In an attempt to cater to more diverse communities and likely drum up more business for its low downpayment program, Freddie Mac unveiled a new mortgage pilot with two lenders last week that loosens eligibility requirements. The program, Your Path, is different in that it is based on certain borrower characteristics and trends. It was launched with two nonbank lenders that specialize in serving the Hispanic community and low-income borrowers. It was announced during the national convention of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals. New American Funding, headquartered in Dallas, and Las Vegas-based Alterra Home Loans are building on Freddie’s low downpayment Home Possible mortgage platform to create the pilot.
