Specialized Mortgage Programs
Making Homeownership More Affordable
Bank of Canton is proud to participate in several mortgage programs that make homeownership possible for more residents in our communities.
We partner with MassHousing to provide borrowers with modest incomes access to low-cost home financing. We also serve first-time homebuyers with our Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Loans. And our nation’s service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses can qualify for our U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs VA Loans.
Through our partnership with MassHousing, we’re able to offer low-cost home loans to help low- to moderate-income residents of Massachusetts buy or refinance a home. We lend money to qualifying borrowers at below-market interest rates, with down payments as low as 3%. Learn more about our MassHousing Loan options.
Our FHA Loans are another option for first-time homebuyers with low to moderate incomes. FHA Loans offer competitive rates, flexible loan terms, and down payments as low as 3.5%. Additionally, your down payment can come from a family member, employer or charitable organization. FHA Loans require a 1.75% upfront mortgage insurance premium, as well as ongoing mortgage insurance until 80% loan-to-value is reached.
Contact your local Bank of Canton mortgage lender to learn more about our FHA Loans, or visit the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s website.
Service members, veterans and eligible surviving spouses can qualify for our VA Home Loans. VA Loans do not require a down payment or mortgage insurance. They also have regulated closing costs, and typically offer lower interest rates. A 2.15% non-refundable VA Funding Fee is required at closing. Maximum loan amount determined by property location.
