Freddie Mac BorrowSmart Program

Freddie Mac BorrowSmartSM offers $1,250 or $2,500 in down payment assistance for eligible borrowers.1

We understand that the expense of a down payment and closing costs can present a challenge for many would-be home buyers.  That’s why we offer Freddie Mac BorrowSmartSM, a loan program designed to help customers purchase a home with less money out of pocket.

•    Eligible borrowers may receive $1,250 or $2,500 in credit towards down payment and/or closings costs1
•    Conventional, conforming mortgage with less than 3% down (if credit is used toward the down payment)
•    Credit is NOT a grant or second lien but a true lender credit
•    Gifts and other down payment assistance programs may also be applied where eligible
