When you buy a home, you're investing in more than real estate—you're investing in a stronger community. That's why Metro is proud to offer our Members several mortgage assistance programs designed to help home buyers and home owners facing special financial circumstances.
Created for moderate-income home buyers, MassHousing's mortgage programs offer low interest and down payments, plus a choice of terms that can make home buying more affordable than you may have thought.
At Home Mortgages
We've created a special program for certain Gateway Cities in conjunction with MassHousing and neighborhood and city development partners to rehabilitate properties in those cities. If you're looking to finance a home in need of updates, the At Home Mortgage Program could cover the cost of the rehabilitation project.
Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP)
Like many homeowners, your house may have lost value over the past several years, making refinancing impossible. If you've kept your mortgage payments current, then HARP, offered by the federal government, may be your solution.
Equity Builder Program
You could be eligible for a grant to use for the purchase of your first home! Let Metro connect you with this program offered by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston.
