Homeready

Designed for creditworthy, low- to moderate-income borrowers, with expanded eligibility for financing homes in designated low-income, minority, and disaster-impacted communities. HomeReady allows lenders to lend with confidence while expanding access to credit and supporting sustainable home ownership.

This loan was created based on Fannie Mae’s Economic and Strategic Research group that reported a “demographic sea change” in the housing market, characterized by the rise of the Millennials, increased diversity, and a growing elderly population; and new household growth is being driven by traditionally underserved segments.
