Programs for First Time Home Buyers

Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC: Broward County)

Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC: Broward County)

The Housing Finance Authority of Broward County has launched a Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) program to help reduce home loan financing costs for qualified homeowners in Broward County.

The MCC program entitles qualified applicants to a federal income tax credit in an amount of up to $2,000 annually. This enables qualified owners or buyers, who owe federal income taxes, to benefit from a dollar-for-dollar reduction of their tax bills. Additionally, the homeowner will continue to receive the tax credit each year they continue to live in the home financed under the MCC program.

The MCC program is not a mortgage; however, it may be used in conjunction with a first mortgage. Borrowers must meet standard mortgage underwriting requirements, which demonstrate credit worthiness, and meet the MCC program's income and home purchase price requirements.

FHA Loans

FHA Loans

Another excellent option at the national level is an FHA loan backed by the Federal Housing Administration. If you are eligible for this type of loan and you have a qualifying credit score, your down payment could be as low as 3.5%. You may choose between a fixed or adjustable interest rate. In either case, the interest rate, like the down payment, should be lower than it would be for an equivalent conventional loan.

Other Government-Backed Loan Programs

Other Government-Backed Loan Programs

You also should not overlook other government-insured loan programs. If the house you are planning to buy is located in a USDA-defined "rural" zone, you might be eligible for a USDA home loan with zero down payment. Another type of loan with zero down is a VA loan. You may be able to qualify for this program if you are a veteran, active duty service member, or a surviving spouse of a veteran.

Conventional loans for First Home Buyers

Conventional loans for First Home Buyers

If a government-insured loan program isn't right for you, both Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac offer a 3% down Conventional loan. By using the standard 3% down loan, a first time home buyer can purchase their home with little money out of pocket. Fannie Mae's Home Ready & Freddie Mac's Home Possible programs also feature reduced rates & mortgage insurance for qualified buyers.

Johanny and his team were amazing from start to finish. As a first time home buyers, he was very patient and walked me through exactly what to expect. Johanny answered all my calls, texts, and emails in less than 2 hours regardless of the time or day of the week. My realtor was sooo impressed with Johanny as he had us ready to close in less than 3 weeks. He had truly made this home buyer process EASY, especially in this market. I’m beyond grateful and can’t wait to work with him again!

Jordan Nicolosi is reliable, informative, and a true professional. When my clients need financing, I can send them to Jordan and that’s one less thing I need to worry about. I know they are in good hands.

Juan is spectacular! We’re not too savvy when it comes to this stuff especially as first time home buyers. But Juan really made the experience stress free and helped us through every step. He made sure to explain everything clearly, and didn’t get upset every time we asked him to repeat. He went above and beyond and we definitely recommend working with him.

I worked with Juan on buying my first home recently and I can confidently say there is no way in the world I could have done it without him. He was available at any time of day any day of the week. He answered every single question we had and helped move our closing process through as smoothly as it can be done. I can not recommend him enough.

Over what was a very difficult experience buying our first home, Michael was a consistent beacon of support, pretty much available 24/7 and communicating whenever needed. The few times they didn't know something or misunderstood (new system), he remedied as fast as he could, which is all you can ask!Thanks for all your help Michael and team! We'll be reaching out when we're ready to refinance 👍

Sometimes you need a great lender to purchase a new home, and sometimes you need an exceptional lender to immediately rescue you from a reverse mortgage nightmare. I will forever be grateful for the home I inherited, (although attached to a reverse mortgage), and the immediacy for which Jordan Nicolosi and his team acted to help me. From the moment I reached out, he was a hundred percent devoted to saving my family home. To say time was an integral part of this challenge was an understatement. In less than 20 days- we just closed on my family home. Through the process Jordan and his team were professional, available via text, phone or email-usually within minutes, and acted with kindness, patience, and as much concern in tackling this matter as quickly as it demanded. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Premier Lending for all lending needs.

My friends referred me to this company, specifically Juan Fajardo and Casey Boyd. I worked primarily with Casey, who was amazing. He was responsive, thoughtful, clear, and always invited more questions. I also felt like he actually paid attention to the details of my case and made it possible for me to obtain the loan I had hoped for. I had also shopped around with two other mortgage companies, and neither came close to being as helpful. I highly recommend.

Casey Boyd at premier lending was our mortgage broker and he was great. He was right there by our side throughout the entire process. He was extremely professional and informative and helped ease our minds through this journey. My husband and I are both extremely satisfied with his service and definitely plan on using him again with any of our future real estate endeavors.

I couldn’t be more grateful to Casey Boyd for helping me purchase my first home. As a nurse with complicated differential rates and per diems, Casey tirelessly fought for me to get the best rate and loan possible. I honestly don’t think I would have gotten this house had I gone with anyone else. Thank you!!!!!

I wish I could give higher than 5 stars. The Premier Lending Corp team is amazing and provides the best customer service experience possible. Jordan Nicolosi is a true professional that acted as a trusted guide during each step of the process. His experience in each phase of the process reduced my stress and made me more confident in the process. I'd highly recommend PLC to anyone looking to make a new house purchase or refinance!

I recently refinanced with Premier, my financial situation is tricky, I own several businesses so showing regular income is difficult. I had two previous mortgage try to refinance my home and the both companies failed. Someone suggested Juan and Premier and they got it done. What I liked most was how organized they are. They got me a great rate and I am set for the next 30 years! Don't waste your time with the "mortgage machines" who are all about volume, Juan and his team at Premier are the people to get it done!

I recently refinance my mortgage with Premier Lending and I can honestly say I'm so happy and grateful for the professional service that they provided. I want to take the time to thank my main man Jordan Nicolosi for the countless hours he put in all texts messages back and forth and the missed phone calls etc. But in the end he came up big. He got me a great rate and made me a happy man. Thanks again Jordan for making it such a smooth process. 👌 I would definitely recommend Jordan Nicolosi for all your financial needs a true professional.

We recently worked with Jordan on the purchase of our new home. From day 1, Jordan made himself available any time we needed him, fielded my endless questions and help to reassure us that we would get the deal done. He was a pleasure to work with!
