Arbor Financial partners with MSHDA

SOUTHWEST, MICH (January 23, 2024)Buying a home is one of the biggest goals that many of our members  have. However, due to external factors it can be difficult for some to achieve this goal.  With our purpose in mind, to grow the financial well-being of our members, we have  added another solution to help our members find the home of their dreams.  

We are excited to announce, Arbor Financial Credit Union has become a certified  partner of the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA). This  collaboration allows us to add another mortgage assistance down payment program to  our offerings. MSHDA leverages state grant funds, to provide support to qualified  borrowers for down payments, closing costs, or prepaid expenses, up to $10,000. All  Arbor Mortgage Originators are experienced in the program ensuring they guide  borrowers through the process and assess their eligibility closely. 

By partnering with MSDHA, we will also be able to help some members claim a  Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC). MCC is a federal tax credit issued in connection with  the purchase of a home. It allows homebuyers the ability to credit 20% of their annual  mortgage interest in their year-end federal income tax liability for up to 30 years.  

“We are excited to partner with MSDHA to help grow the financial well-being of our  members. Each of our Mortgage lenders is trained in MSDHA and can help see if you  qualify. If you qualify, they will work closely with you and your Realtor to make sure the  process is as seamless as possible.” Says Vice President of Mortgage Lending Susan  Weir. Come see why we are one of MSDHA’s preferred lenders!
