IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--loanDepot, Inc. ("LDI" or "Company") (NYSE: LDI) has launched its new “accessZERO” program intended to make homeownership more accessible for aspiring homebuyers grappling with traditional down payment requirements, high-interest rates and rising home prices. With affordability concerns eroding consumers' purchasing power, accessZERO is a powerful option that offers financial flexibility by providing an alternative to one of the barriers to homeownership.
The program is available nationwide1 for FHA purchase mortgages2 and offers up to five percent in downpayment assistance structured as a 10-year fully amortized repayable second mortgage. It is open to first-time and repeat homebuyers who meet minimum credit score and debt-to-income (DTI) ratio requirements.
“As we continue to unlock new ways for our customers to purchase homes in today’s challenging market, accessZERO helps address a significant barrier, particularly for first-time buyers grappling with the obstacle of saving for the higher-down payments that come with the rising costs of housing,” said LDI Mortgage President Jeff Walsh.
Complementing accessZERO and its roster of products aimed at increasing home affordability, loanDepot offers a holistic suite of digital tools designed to support first-time buyers through every stage of the home-buying journey.
