The Maryland Mortgage Program helps homebuyers in Maryland achieve their dream of homeownership through a range of programs that make purchasing and owning a home more affordable.
Home Loan Programs
MMP home loans are available as either Government or Conventional insured loans. Government loans can be guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), or the U.S. Department of Agriculture/Rural Housing Service (USDA/RHS). Conventional loans may have higher interest rates but the private mortgage insurance cost could result in a lower overall monthly payment.
MMP has a dual track product line which includes the 1st Time Advantage loan products and the Flex products. We also offer some specialty loans for specific types of borrowers (with student debt, or purchasing in a particular location). Product enhancements may also be available (special assistance grants or mortgage credit certificates).
Your individual situation will determine which loan option fits you best. Talk to one of our state-approved mortgage lenders to learn more.
