MHO’s Self-Help Homeownership Program provides families and individuals the opportunity to achieve the dream of homeownership. The Self-Help program brings together a group of four to six qualifying families to work cooperatively to build their homes under the guidance of an MHO construction supervisor. All homes are financed with low-interest USDA mortgages, which along with the “sweat equity” construction hours put in by the homeowners, reduces the cost of the homes. With the Self-Help program, neighbors work alongside one another to build community from the ground up. The program is labor intensive, but also immensely rewarding. Read what, one of our Self-Help homeowners, has to say.

I agree with Michael Cheng. If you have a great credit score, stable, verifiable income, verifiable cash on hand or assets, you are a dream client. By comparison shopping, you will be able to obtain a Loan Estimate from at least three different types of lenders: Talk with the mortgage department of where you currently bank. You already have a banking relationship with them. This is a good place to start. Next, apply with a local, licensed non-bank mortgage lender. Somebody located in the town in which you live. Last, apply with a local mortgage broker.
