Click n' Close launches down payment assistance with shared home equity option

Click n’ Close has announced a new shared home appreciation option within its down payment assistance (DPA) program.

The DPA with shared appreciation program offers below-market interest rates for first-lien FHA and USDA loans, along with a repayable second lien to cover down payment assistance. In exchange, borrowers share up to 40% of the home’s appreciation over the first five years. Program rates start at 4.75% for a 5-1 adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM).

The Texas-based mortgage lender said the new offering is designed to make homeownership more accessible for prospective buyers.

“It’s no secret that the combination of rising interest rates, limited inventory and growing property appreciation have made it more difficult for potential homebuyers to purchase in today’s market. While existing homeowners have benefitted tremendously from skyrocketing home equity, that trend has put buyers at a tremendous disadvantage,” Click n’ Close CEO Jeff Bode said in a Press release. “By combining our proprietary DPA programs with a shared appreciation option, we’re not only helping buyers get into a home more easily but also reap the benefit of homeownership from day one.”

The program is available to retail clients and through Click n’ Close’s wholesale division.
