Kentucky Housing Corporation Honors Top Lenders

Lending Partners Enable Kentuckians to Secure Safe Home Loans

Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC), the state housing finance agency, recognized its 2010 top lending partners of affordable mortgage loans at the Sixth Annual Lender Luncheon today, Thursday, March 10, 2011, in Frankfort.

Kentuckians who received a home loan from KHC in 2010 worked with one of 105 lending partner banks and mortgage companies located in communities throughout the state.  KHC offers loans for first-time home buyers and previous homeowners in targeted counties.  Since its creation in 1972, more than 82,000 Kentucky households have become homeowners by obtaining a KHC loan. 

Brenda Walker, senior director of KHC’s Homeownership Department, said, “Our relationships with lending partners across the state allow us the opportunity to offer beneficial home buying products and services.  Now with the addition of the KHC-Certified Real Estate Agent program, we are able to ensure that future Kentucky homeowners receive the best help possible in obtaining an affordable home loan.”

The KHC-Certified Real Estate Agent program gives recognition to real estate agents who have a commitment to presenting affordable home-financing solutions to home buyers.  Kentucky Housing Corporation also offers at or below-market-rate home loans, at a 30-year fixed interest rate including conventional, Federal Housing Administration, Veterans Affairs, and Rural Housing Services loans.  Several down payment assistance programs are available to help home buyers meet closing costs and down payment requirements.  Free homeownership education and financial counseling are also available.        

“Despite the difficulties that plague the current housing market, KHC continues to work with lenders, real estate agents, counselors, and homeowners, to help ensure that every Kentuckian has a safe, affordable place to live,” said Richard L. McQuady, Kentucky Housing Corporation’s chief executive officer.  “Without the outstanding partners we recognize today, KHC would not be able to make so many dreams come true.”
