Down Payment Assistance

LedndingInTheD Mortgage Broker offers Down Payment Assistance ("DPA") provided by Chenoa Fund, an affordable housing program provided through CBC Mortgage Agency ("CBCMA").  The DPA corresponds with FHA and Conventional loan products and allows for 100% financing through repayable and forgivable seconds.  The DPA is underwritten with the first mortgage loan, allowing the loan process to move forward at a steady pace.
