The homeready program could be a good alternative for folks with limited funds. Unlike FHA or other programs, this program allows borrowers to put as little as 3% down.
One of the highlights of this program is the fact that the mortgage insurance is cancellable once the balance falls below 80% of LTV, and cancelled automatically once the balance falls below 78% LTV.
Moreover, the co-borrower does not have to reside in the same property, which removes a big hurdle while looking for a co-borrower.
In addition, Borrowers and co-borrowers can have an interest in other properties at the time of purchase, provided that they intend on using the property purchased with homeready as the primary residence.
