DSHA Update August 15, 2011 - Rate Change (Delaware First Time Home Buyers Program)
DSHA has reduced the interest rates under its Delaware First Time Home Buyers Program (SFMRB). 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.
Current interest rates, 30 year fixed-rate mortgage (As of this post, Rates Subject to Change):
- 3.5% (formerly 4.25%) - New, Existing or 203K Acquisition/Rehab Homes Loans (without SMAL)
- 4.5% (formerly 4.875%) - New, Existing or 203K Acquisition/Rehab Homes Loans (with SMAL)
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.
