LET’S REVIEW.... What is FundMyHome.org? FundMyHome.org is a Down Payment Assistance program managed in collaboration with Real Estate Mortgage Grants and Down Payment Assistance, Inc., a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit organization Providing Home Ownership Opportunities. We help Lenders close more Home-Buyers by helping to provide some or all the Money needed for Down Payment and Closing Costs. Our Goal is to help bring Home-Buyers to Close with ZERO or Little out of Pocket.
FundMyHome.org is not a Lender. Nevertheless, FundMyHome.org helps its preferred lenders approve more Home-Buyers by helping to provide funds needed for Down Payment and Closing Costs. Also, on a case by case basis it may provide Home-Buyers with the funds they need to pay-off old collection accounts; this helps to lower Home-Buyer’s Debt to Income Ratios, therefore increasing their Purchasing Power.
FundMyHome.org also helps Home-Buyers increase Credit Scores by helping to insert their Rental History, Utilities, Mobile Phone Bills, and Insurance Payments on their Credit Reports.
Non-Repayable.... Unlike some or most Cities, Counties and States, which give Down Payment Assistance in the form of Zero Interest, Deferred Payment Second Mortgages, our Down Payment Assistance is Non-Repayable, It can be gifted without liens or second mortgages. Funds are wire transferred at closing by the 501(c)(3) Non-profit Organization.
No Income Limits.... Unlike some or most Down Payment Assistance Programs from Cities, Counties and States, which limit Home-Buyers’ income to only 50-80% of their Area Median Household Income, FundMyHome.org does not have income limits.
Working the proper sequence....

FundMyHome.org approves Homebuyers before they engage Sellers into Purchase Agreements.
