Summertime Savings to Help You Buy a Home
Sponsored by MassHousing | 7/25/2017, 4:23 p.m.
Special Savings, Reliable Features
This summer, MassHousing is offering qualifying borrowers a trio of special savings: $1,500 closing cost credit, discounted interest rates and reduced mortgage insurance premiums.
These savings are in addition to the features of all MassHousing loans: low down payment requirements; competitive, fixed interest rates; MIPlusTM job loss protection benefits; no hidden fees or other surprises; and local, in-house loan servicing (which means you’ll make your payments and get your questions answered by someone right here in Boston, and not in some far-off office park in another state).
“Buying a home in Greater Boston can be challenging, so it helps to have the support of a lender who is committed to your success,” said MassHousing’s Director of HomeOwnership Production Lisa Fiandaca. “These savings give homebuyers a much-needed boost toward achieving the dream of homeownership.”

Up-Front Savings, Long-Term Affordability
For many would-be homebuyers, the up-front costs are the biggest obstacle to homeownership. The $1,500 closing cost credit, along with low down payment requirements mean a lower initial investment by MassHousing borrowers this summer.
However, buying a home is a long-term investment. The discounted interest rates and mortgage insurance premiums will result in savings for years to come.

Support When You Need It
As the state’s trusted lender, MassHousing is committed to our borrowers’ long-term success. Unlike many lenders, who sell the servicing of mortgage loans to third parties, MassHousing services all of its own loans. If any issues arise, MassHousing’s in-house loan servicing staff will be there to help.
“Local, high-touch servicing has been beneficial to our borrowers in maintaining their loans and their homes,” said Kevin Mello, MassHousing’s Director of HomeOwnership Servicing & Operations. “We really do have a vested interest in the success of our customers and the communities where they live.”
MassHousing loans also come with MIPlus, a unique borrower protection that helps repay a loan for up to six months in case of job loss. MIPlus is offered at no additional cost by MassHousing on all loans that require mortgage insurance.
