M&I Bank is offering a unique Neighborhood Home Loan Program

M&I, soon to be BMO Harris Bank, is offering another fantastic financing option called the Neighborhood Home Loan Program (NHLP), which is a 30 year, fixed-rate loan with as little as 3% down with NO PRIVATE MORTGAGE INSURANCE! Potential clients would also be able to receive a $1,600 closing cost credit from M&I Bank if they open a Portfolio Checking account and establish auto-pay for their new mortgage.

Typically, NHLP is an income restricted program, however, there is no income restriction when utilizing the program for the purchase of a home in a “low” or “moderate” income census tract (defined by the Federal Government based on census data). This program can be used on owner-occupied single family homes, duplexes (with 5% minimum down), or condos that meet Freddie Mac guidelines.

NHLP loans can also be utilized by borrowers buying a property in Dane County who make under $65,500 gross annual income. Borrowers under this income limit can use this program to purchase owner-occupied homes that are not located in “low” or “moderate” income census tracts. These borrowers buying outside of a “low” or “moderate” income census tract would be eligible to receive a $1,100 closing cost credit from M&I if they open a Portfolio Checking account us and establish auto-pay for their new mortgage.

With interest rates still at or near historic lows, coupled with this lending option, you really shouldn’t wait to make a move. Get into a new home before the holidays!
