We offer two options that fit the needs of many buyers.

Mortgage Credit Certificates

A Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) reduces the amount of federal income tax homebuyers must pay, which in turn frees up income to qualify for a mortgage. Borrowers can claim a tax credit up to 50 percent of the mortgage interest paid per year, capped at $2,000 annually. It is a dollar-for-dollar reduction against a borrower's federal tax liability. To receive immediate savings from the MCC, the borrower must file a revised W-4 withholding form with their employer, which should reduce the yearly tax contribution and increase the borrower's take-home pay. Borrowers can also choose to realize the savings once a year through the federal income tax return to be filed.
