Maryland Mortgage Program Changes for 2019

Maryland Mortgage Program Changes for 2019

Are you moving?  Why are you paying someone else $1,000 or more a month for rent when you can be paying yourself?  Are you thinking about buying a home?  Don't have enough money saved for your down payment?  I can help you with that!!  It's possible to buy a home with as little as $1,000 of your own money. 

Starting January 1, 2019 the homebuyer education requirements for the Maryland Mortgage Program (MMP) is now standardized for all 23 counties in Maryland and the City of Baltimore.  

Homebuyer education classes can be taken in any HUD, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae or private mortgage insurers.  Classes can be online or in person, but, a dated completed certification must be issued.  

The class must be completed within 12 months of closing, all pre contract restrictions have been removed. 

Homebuyer education completion certificates are now transferrable across Maryland state jurisdictions.  So, classes taken in one county can now be used in another.  

Let's get started!!
