HomePlus - Arizona - Home Buyer Down Payment Program

– Lender Training:

Each approved, participating lender, has delegated authority in determining who within their origination participates in the HOME+PLUS program and to what level of involvement they will have.  As such, training is not a mandatory AzIDA requirement however, it is strongly recommended.  
To schedule group training, either onsite in-person or webinar based please contact Dirk Swift at dirk.swift@azhousing.gov

- We Have Prepared Training Documents For Lenders.

There are a total of 9 sections that have been created for you. These have been processed as PDF files for you to view / print. Clicking link below will take you to a new page with these documents. We recommend you open/read in order.

– Interest Rates:

The interest rates for the respective underlying 1st mortgages are set by AzIDA and are the same for each program approved participating lender. Our interest rates follow the market and are subject to the same daily fluctuations as mortgage interest rates outside the DPA program. The HOME+PLUS interest rates are provided on a daily basis and are available to program approved participating mortgage lenders in three formats:
  1. Under the Bulletin Board tab within our HTS/Emphasys-Lender Online system – log in credentials required
  2. Within the Optimal Blue site
  3. Via direct email from the HTS team
To be included in the daily email distribution please contact Dirk Swift at dirk.swift@azhousing.gov

– Marketing Material:

In an effort to promote and increase program awareness we provide marketing materials for mortgage lenders and Realtors.

– Payoffs, subordinations and other DPA lien information:

The home buyer can refinance or sell at any time. If a refinance or sale occurs before the forgiveness period has been completed, the HOME+PLUS DPA 2nd lien would need to be paid. The amount of the payoff would depend upon the type of assistance provided, either (1) a three-year, no interest, no payment, deferred soft second mortgage, forgiven monthly at a rate of 1/36 over the term of the lien or (2) a life of loan second lien, with no interest, no monthly payment, with full repayment required at the time of refinance or sale. We do not subordinate or provide exceptions to the 2nd DPA lien repayment terms.
US Bank is the servicer of both the 1st mortgage and the HOME+PLUS DPA 2nd lien. The payoff statement from US Bank on the 1st mortgage will also include the required payoff on the HOME+PLUS DPA 2nd lien (listed as a Recoverable Corporate Advance Balance).

– HOW to Become an Approved Home Plus Mortgage Lender:

To become a HOME+PLUS participating mortgage lender, your company must be approved by our master servicer, US Bank under their Home Mortgage Housing Finance Agency Division and execute a Mortgage Origination Agreement with AzIDA.  US Bank does not allow or accept third party originations and as such cannot directly or indirectly accept brokered business.  
There is no application fee to sign up to become a participating lender in the AzIDA HOME+PLUS program.  Please contact Dirk Swift at dirk.swift@azhousing.gov  to request an application.
