FHA Loan Program
FHA-Insured Loans offer many benefits and a level of security that you won’t find in other loans. While the loans are funded by Mid-Island Mortgage Corp., the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insures these mortgages so Mid-Island Mortgage Corp. can offer more borrower flexibility. This loan is particularly designed to benefit first-time homebuyers and buyers who don’t have perfect credit or a lot of money to put down.

Fannie Mae HomeReady™ Loan Program
HomeReady loans are ideal for home buyers with limited savings, and the down payment and closing costs can be paid from sources other than your own funds.
A HomeReady mortgage allows co-borrowers who don’t live in the home to be included on the mortgage, such as parents or others who want to help. Plus, extended family or other household members’ income can help you qualify—even if they aren’t on the mortgage.
HomeReady’s private mortgage insurance may cost less over time and may be eligible to be canceled once 20% home equity is reached, unlike mortgage insurance on government-insured loans. Convenient online education prepares you to buy and own a home for the long run.
