Maryland Mortgage Program 1st Time Advantage 5% Loan
The Maryland Mortgage Program (MMP) helps homebuyers in Maryland achieve their dream of homeownership through a range of programs that make purchasing and owning a home more affordable. MMP home loans are 30-year fixed-rate loans available as either Government or Conventional insured loans. 1st Time Advantage loans are designed to offer eligible homebuyers the lowest 30-year fixed interest rate available for Maryland Mortgage Program loans. The 1st Time Advantage 5% Loan comes with a down payment assistance loan equal to 5% of the first mortgage, structured as a 0% deferred interest second lien.
