AMGC Community Program

High-LTV Portfolio Lending Solution Promotes Affordable Homebuying

Strong communities depend on a healthy mix of residents with a wide range of skills. They need essential workers, like police, firefighters and paramedics, but also degreed professionals with valuable expertise in specific fields.

But with home prices increasing and rates rising, both groups are finding they can’t afford to buy homes in their communities. Down payments are usually the biggest obstacle for these would-be homeowners.
