Conventional Options

A conventional loan is a mortgage that is not part of a specific government program. Homebuyers may choose a conventional loan because they offer the best interest rates and loan terms — usually resulting in a lower monthly payment. Homeowners may also choose a conventional loan if they have 20% to put down and avoid mortgage insurance.

Maryland Mortgage Program

The Maryland Mortgage Program (MMP), provided by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), provides 30-year fixed-rate home loans to eligible homebuyers purchasing in Maryland with competitive loan terms and a range of associated financial incentives and other assistance that, for many homebuyers, means the difference between being able to purchase and continuing to rent.

MMP 1st Time Advantage

Offers eligible first-time homebuyers the lowest 30-year fixed interest rate available from the program for a home loan. (Mortgage credit certificates may not be layered with 1st Time Advantage loans.)

 

  • 1st Time Advantage Direct: No down payment assistance (DPA) available, but usually offers our most competitive interest rates. External sources of DPA may be used.
  • 1st Time Advantage 5000: Comes with a $5,000 loan for down payment and closing costs. This second lien has a 0% interest rate, and no payments are due for the life of the first mortgage. As soon as the first mortgage ends (repayment, refinance, transfer, sale, etc.), the second lien is due and payable. The $5,000 line is eligible for Partner Match funds, if applicable.
  • 1st Time Advantage 3% Loan: Comes with a DPA loan equal to 3% of the first mortgage in a zero percent deferred second lien.
  • Must meet qualifying criteria
Flex Loans

30-year, fixed-rate home loan products accompanied by additional funds for down payment and closing costs. The assistance is available in the form of no-interest, deferred loan or an outright grant (doesn’t get repaid).

 

  • Flex Direct: No down payment assistance (DPA) available, but offers our most competitive interest rates that can still get a mortgage credit certificate (MCC). External sources of DPA may be used.
  • Flex 5000: Comes with a $5,000 loan for down payment and closing costs. This second lien has a 0% interest rate, and no payments are due for the life of the first mortgage. As soon as the first mortgage ends (repayment, refinance, transfer, sale, etc.), the second lien is due and payable. The $5,000 line is eligible for Partner Match funds, if applicable.
  • Flex 3% Loan: Comes with a DPA loan equal to 3% of the first mortgage in a zero percent deferred second lien.

  • Flex 4% Grant: Comes with a grant equal to 4% of the first mortgage. Grant does not get repaid.
  • Must meet qualifying criteria
Partner Match
  • Available only with Maryland Mortgage Premier loans. Funds available through the Partner Match Program are provided in the form of a no-interest, deferred loan and may be used for down payment and closing costs.
  • These programs often include grants, loans and other helpful assistance, and you should begin research early in the home buying process to discover which programs may be available to you.​​​​​
  • If you’re using the 1st Time Advantage 5000 or the Flex 5000 loan products to purchase your home, any financial assistance you receive from one or more of these Partners is matched (up to $2,500) as additional down payment assistance. Just like the Loan Assist down payment assistance, this additional funding is available as a no-interest, deferred loan from the state, payable when the first mortgage is fully paid off.​​​​​
  • There are many organizations that have already been certified as Partners, and you can search Maryland CDA’s database of Employers, Homebuilders, Community Organization and Local Governments to find Partners that can help you.​​​​​

  • The full student debt for at least one of the borrowers must be paid off at the time of the home purchase, and homebuyers must meet all eligibility requirements for the Maryland Mortgage program.
HomeAbility

HomeAbility is a special product designed to assist Maryland homebuyers with disabilities to finance their home purchase. This is a conventional loan product and provides 80% of the purchase price in a first mortgage and up to 25% of the purchase price (capped at $45,000) in a second lien to assist with down payment and closing costs.
