Home Sweet Home

Burke & Herbert Bank is pleased to offer an exciting new mortgage program specifically designed to increase home ownership opportunities for buyers in select locations.*

A Down Payment You Can Manage

To make down payments attainable, our Home Opportunity Mortgage features a rock-bottom down payment contribution for buyers.

  • 3% minimum down payment
  • Buyer’s minimum contribution is 1%; remainder may be funded by gifts or grants

Monthly Payments That Are Affordable

Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) is waived or significantly reduced on all Home Opportunity Mortgages, reducing your monthly mortgage costs.

  • Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) is waived for loans with a down payment greater than 10%.
  • PMI is significantly reduced for loans with a down payment between 3% – 10%.

Credit Requirements To Help You Qualify

You don’t need a flawless credit history to get a Home Opportunity Mortgage.

  • You can be approved with a credit score 620 or higher depending on underwriting factors.

Closing Cost Assistance

Not having enough cash to cover mortgage closing costs does not have to be a barrier either. Assistance is available.

  • 1% lender credit available to help cover closing costs**
  • Seller credits permitted to help cover closing costs

Home Opportunity Mortgage borrowers must complete an approved home buyer education and financial literacy course specified by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta. This program will help ensure you are well-prepared to manage the finances associated with home ownership.
