A&D Mortgage expands loan options, targets affordability

A&D Mortgage, a non-qualified mortgage lender, has expanded its lending programs with new temporary buydown options for Fannie Mae’s Manufactured Homes and HomeReady programs.

The specialized lender said the move is “designed to make homeownership more accessible and affordable for a wider range of borrowers, including first-time homebuyers and those seeking manufactured housing solutions.”

Temporary buydowns are a financial tool that reduces the interest rate on a mortgage for a set period – typically the first few years of the loan. This translates to significantly lower monthly payments for the borrower, easing the financial strain often associated with the early stages of homeownership.

A&D Mortgage has introduced two temporary buydown options designed to boost affordability:

  • 3-2-1 Buydown: This option offers a 3% interest rate reduction in the first year, 2% in the second year, and 1% in the third year. After the third year, the borrower’s interest rate reverts to the original fixed rate for the remaining loan term.
  • 2-1 Buydown: This option provides a 2% rate reduction in the first year and 1% in the second year. After the second year, the interest rate returns to the original fixed rate.

A&D said these new options are especially beneficial for Fannie Mae HomeReady program participants, aimed at low- to moderate-income borrowers. Additionally, individuals seeking to purchase Fannie Mae manufactured homes can now benefit from reduced initial payments.
