HomeReady APIs

Maximize affordable lending opportunities

Would empowering your team to offer more unique lending products like HomeReady to low-income, credit-worthy potential borrowers be a "game-changer" for your business? Imagine your HomeReady-eligibile borrowers having the opportunity to weigh all their choices from the begining - with your company being the stand-out option. 

And what if you could identify these potential borrowers sooner through automation, allowing those conversations to be had as early as the point-of-sale?

Find more potentially eligible loans

If you are still manually identifying borrowers who may be eligible for HomeReady, such as performing manual lookups like area median income (AMI) and guideline reviews, you are likely finding only a small fraction of the potentially eligible loans in your pipeline. This could result in lost customers, fewer offered loans, and potential missed savings for borrowers and you. To determine how many of your loans were potentially eligible for but not submitted as HomeReady, access the Fannie Mae Connect report, "Potential HomeReady Eligible-Not Delivered as HomeReady".

Our AMI Lookup and HomeReady Evaluation API and Potential HomeReady Eligible Casefiles API can help you more easily identify potential HomeReady-eligible opportunities.
