Are you considering buying a home but don’t have much saved for a down payment? Don’t be disappointed! The Colorado Housing and Finance Authority  announced a new mortgage product designed to help homebuyers with excellent credit scores avoid having to make a 20% payment in order to escape costly mortgage insurance fees. If you have a minimum credit score of 680, you will only require only 3 percent down and the best part of it- NO Mortgage Insurance!!

Mortgage insurance is typically required for homebuyers who are unable to make a 20% down payment regardless of their credit score. MI protects the lender in case the buyer defaults on their loan. ON average MI costs are $100-$200 each month. It is paid as part of your mortgage payment until you have accrued 20% equity in your home. This program will give you the opportunity to avoid MI with only 3% down.

Another great thing about this program is that you don’t have to be a first time home buyer to qualify.


To be eligible you must:

  • Complete a CHFA- approved home buyer education class

  • Have a mid credit score of 680

  • Contribute a 3% down payment

  • Meet Income limits


Some of you might be currently renting but might consider buying in the near future. If you are worried that you don’t have enough money saved for a large down payment, don’t hesitate to contact for details and consultation. I will pair you with a knowledgeable and experienced lender who will go over the details of this great program that will allow you to buy your next dream home.
