WHEDA Home Loan Program
First time home buyer program in Wisconsin
The WHEDA home loan program is becoming popular among first time home buyers in Wisconsin, because it has the smallest down payment required among all home loans, besides no down payment programs. WHEDA is only available in Wisconsin, so this makes it very unique for our state and home buyers looking to buy in Wisconsin.
Here are some details of a WHEDA home loan:
- The minimum down payment required is only 3% of the property purchase price.
- Assistance with the down payment and closing costs. Basically, you can take out an additional loan to fund the 3% down payment and costs of the home loan. Keep in mind, WHEDA requires you to have $1000 into the transaction.
- Local loan servicing by WHEDA. They do not sell their mortgage servicing in the secondary market.
- Interest rates are very low, especially since they only require a small down payment.
- The PMI payment is usually the lowest among all programs, even a conventional home loan.
- There is a special tax advantage to qualified borrowers.
The WHEDA home loan is truly one of the best programs available for first time home buyers, especially in Wisconsin, because it’s only for Wisconsin.
We really encourage you to get yourself pre-qualified with this program, before getting to far into looking at homes you want to buy. Sellers today are looking for serious buyers and a serious buyer has a pre-qualification letter ready. Learn about the importance of a pre-qualification letter.
We have an online application that is very secure with your information and very easy to use. It comes directly to us and your information is never sold. We can issue you a pre-qualification letter in 24-48 hours, after receiving all your information.
Here is the direct link to the online application: Secure Online Application
