Minnesota Housing – Deferred Payment Loan
This loan is meant for first-time homebuyers to help ease the cost of home ownership. There are two loan options, a deferred payment loan and a plus loan. The deferred payment loan has loans up to $8,000. The maximum for the plus loan is higher, up to $10,000 for those borrowers who fit target criteria. Minimum credit score for qualified borrowers is 640. The borrowers must also attend a homebuyer education course. The loan term is equal to the first mortgage and has 0% interest – the loan is repaid when the property is sold, no longer the homestead of the homeowners or the loan is refinanced.
