CalHFA MyHome Assistance Program

New CalHFA program available through Meriwest Mortgage

Low-to-No Down Payment!

If a down payment is the only thing standing between you and your first home, you’re in luck!

Imagine …

  • Finally building equity with your housing payment and benefiting from the rapid increase in Bay Area real estate values.
  • Having the same housing payment no matter how crazy the housing market becomes
  • Making your home your own … however you like

We can help you make homeownership a reality…

Meriwest Mortgage can help you buy your first home by putting CalHFA MyHome to work to reduce your down payment and closing costs.

These loans are available on homes up to $765,000 that meet these criteria:

  • Single-family, one-unit residence, including approved condominium/PUDs
    • Guest houses, granny units and in-law quarters may be eligible
  • Manufactured housing is permitted
  • Condominiums must meet the guidelines of the first mortgage
  • There is a five-acre maximum on the size of the property

Meriwest Mortgage can make the process easy for you if you:

  • are a first-time homebuyer
  • plan to occupy the property as a primary residence
  • complete homebuyer education counseling from an eligible homebuyer counseling organization
  • meet generous CalHFA income limits for this program
  • Dream it! Own it!

Let Meriwest Mortgage help you get the best rate with fast closing on your CalHFA loan.
