New Mortgage Initiative to Cover PMI for Homebuyers

For a limited time, homebuyers can benefit from a new mortgage enhancement--the Alabama Home Buyer Initiative--that will provide private mortgage insurance (PMI) at no cost to the borrower.

The initiative will pay the up-front single PMI premium--saving the average homebuyer approximately $100 each month.

This unique option is designed to complement AHFA's Step Up mortgage program by providing 30-year, fixed-rate financing and down payment assistance with no PMI costs for the homebuyer.  Eligible borrowers may earn up to $97,300 in total household income and must also complete a homeownership education course to qualify.

For proposed construction cases, $100 million has been reserved for the first six-month period of the initiative. Each loan will receive a four-month commitment of funds during the home's construction period.

The Alabama Home Buyer Initiative could help approximately 2,000 Alabama families and generate $275 million in home sales.
