WHAT

Noir Black Chamber of Commerce Inc. is excited to announce the launch of its online HUD-Approved Homebuyer Educations Certificate Course, in partnership with eHome America! This new online platform makes it easier for black families to become homeowners, and it allows the chamber to continue its mission to move black and brown families from renting and redlining to homeownership.

 

The Chamber’s homebuyer education program is unique in that it a FREE program that “walks with” each client through the entire process towards homeownership. The program begins with identifying which type of homebuyer the client is, followed by connecting them to a credit restoration and repair organization, online homebuyer education course, mortgage lenders, city’s down payment assistance program (If program is available in your city), a realtor, an insurance broker, then a financial planner to assist the family plan for its future.

WHY

As the country grapples with an affordable housing crisis, there’s an even larger issue of closing the gap in homeownership rates among Black Americans due to redlining and deed-restricted covenants, which made it impossible for Black families to own homes. Since the 2008 financial crisis, the Black homeownership rate has fallen behind; and the gap between Black and white homeownership is now wider than it was more than 50 years ago, right before the 1968 Fair Housing Act was enacted to create equal housing opportunities for minorities, according to a report by the Urban Institute.

 

In an effort to assist black individuals and families move toward homeownership, Noir Black Chamber of Commerce Inc. created a free eleven step homebuyer education program that supports and guides clients through each of the eleven steps towards homeownership.

HUD HOMEBUYER EDUCATION CERTIFICATE

A HUD Certificate is obtained by completing a HUD Certified Homeownership Course, and the certificate can be applied towards different HUD Loans.

 

HUD Loans

Also called Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans—are mortgage loans that are offered by private lenders and insured by the FHA. The FHA is an agency within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

If you’re considering buying or refinancing a home, learn what a HUD loan is and if it’s an option for you.

What Is a HUD Loan?

HUD loans aren’t actually issued by HUD, nor the FHA. Instead, they’re originated by private lenders approved by HUD, then insured by the FHA against loss.

  • Alternate name: FHA loan

  • Acronym: HUD (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development), FHA (Federal Housing Administration)

How HUD Loans Work

HUD loans work because they’re insured by the FHA. This protection allows lenders to offer affordable interest rates, accept low down payments, and approve borrowers whose credit may not be perfect.

But insurance comes at a cost. HUD borrowers pay both an upfront mortgage insurance premium (UFMIP) plus a monthly insurance premium that is lumped in with their mortgage payment. The cost of these premiums varies based on the down payment and loan amount. In some cases, this insurance can be canceled after 11 years.

HUD loans can be used to buy or refinance a property, and they’re available for multifamily properties and health care facilities as well. You can also use HUD loans to purchase manufactured housing and mobile homes.

HUD vs. FHA Loans

HUD loans and FHA loans are one and the same. The FHA is part of HUD and is the agency that actually insures these types of mortgage loans.

Qualifying for a Loan

The FHA was originally created to make homeownership more affordable for everyday Americans. As such, HUD loans come with low credit-score requirements (anywhere from 500 to 580), and the minimum down payment is just 3.5%.

General Requirements

Credit Score

At least 500 for 90% loan to value (LTV) financing (a 10% down payment) At least 580 for maximum financing

Down Payment

3.5% minimum

Debt-to-Income (DTI) Ratio

43% (although exceptions may be made)
