The SFMRB program offers 30-year mortgages with a fixed interest rate to first-time homebuyers, i.e.,  buyers who have not owned a principal residence within the past three years. Eligible veterans are exempt from the 3 years rule, i.e., they may take advantage of this program, regardless of whether or not they have previously owned a home.

203K Streamline Loan Highlights:   

Rate*: 3.49%

General Purpose: allows buyer to purchase home and finance repairs, e.g., new windows, roof, painting, flooring, etc., making it possible for the buyers to purchase a home that needs some Tender Loving Care (TLC). 

Minimum: None

Maximum: $35,000

*As of this post. Subject to change.

Qualified buyers can also use the Second Mortgage Assistance Loan (SMAL) program for down payment and closing cost assistance up to $10,000 in conjunction with the Delaware First Time Home Buyers Program, making it possible for the buyers to purchase with little to no money out of pocket.

Letitia, 203Ks are great.  The only issue typically sometimes is the lender.  If we get through that, we are good to go.  Great Post!
