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
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.”
