Affordable rates, straightforward terms

MassHousing offers fixed-rate loans with no hidden fees, adjustable rates, or surprise costs. These easy to understand terms are one reason first-time homebuyers are encouraged to look into MassHousing loans.

Down payment assistance

Saving for a down payment is often the biggest hurdle for those looking to finance a home. MassHousing offers down payment assistance of up to $50,000, which for many means less time saving and reaching homeownership goals faster. Down payment assistance amounts and eligibility are based on several factors, including where you live.

Unique mortgage insurance with payment protection

MassHousing offers a one-of-a-kind mortgage insurance called MIPLUS. This offers mortgage payment protection if you are unable to make payments due to a loss of employment.

How to determine if you're eligible

The best way to find out if you’re eligible is to speak with a mortgage loan officer, but you can get a head start on the conversation by answering the following questions:

1. Do you earn less than $190,755 per year?

2. Are you in the market to buy a single-family home, condo, or 2-4 family property in Massachusetts?

3. Will the home be your primary residence?
