Resources for Lenders and Brokers
PHFA offers home purchase and refinance loans with competitive interest rates and fees to eligible homebuyers. These home loans are originated, processed, and closed by a network of approved participating lending institutions. The loans and servicing rights are then purchased by the Agency following settlement. PHFA loans are also originated by approved mortgage brokers who obtain sponsorship from a participating lender.
PHFA offers a number of resources to lenders including regional, on-site, and Web-based training opportunities; e-mail and phone support; and, program brochures. This Web site is also a key resource for participating lenders by providing current program guidelines, forms, updates, and other pertinent information. It also outlines the criteria and provides the application materials for lenders and brokers that are interested in offering PHFA's line of home purchase and assistance loans.
The network of lenders and brokers is a vital part of PHFA's homeownership program, ensuring that all buyers in Pennsylvania have access to PHFA's home purchase loans.
