Who is eligible for a Welcome Home Loan?
Welcome Home Loans are real, fixed-rate mortgage loans for manufactured homes located in New Hampshire, when the homeowner owns the land or when the house is located in a resident-owned community.
Borrowers must have a stable income and show that they will be able to repay the mortgage. Borrowers should have a satisfactory record of repayment on past credit, but no minimum credit score is required.
What types of loans are available?
Fixed-rate loans for purchase, refinancing and home equity for home repairs and energy-saving upgrades.
Is there any restriction on the age of the home?
No, the age of the house doesn't matter.
What down payment is necessary?
Down payment for a purchase loan can be as small as 5% of the purchase price. At least 2% must come from the borrower; the other 3% can come from gifts or from the seller.
What interest rate and loan terms do you offer?
Our current interest rate is 8.875% (Annual Percentage Rate of 8.903% with a $100,000 loan amount, $5,000 down payment, no points). Loan term can be as long as 30 years.
What are your closing costs and other fees?
We charge a $25 credit report fee for a single applicant (one person) or a $30 credit report fee for joint applicants (two persons) that must be paid at the time of the application. There are no other application fees.
Closing costs run approximately $1,700 to $2,400 and cover an appraisal, loan origination fee, title insurance, recording fees, tax stamps, and attorney fees, among other items.
In addition, you’ll be asked to make a deposit into an escrow account to be used for your first real estate tax and homeowners insurance bills.
