What Is Family Opportunity Loan?

Find out how Family Opportunity Loan can be used for helping elderly parents, children that are college-bound, and disabled adult children.

A great mortgage program here in Colorado that has always been around for quite some time, is the Family Opportunity Loan program. Not many people inquire about it, however, it can literally save you tens of thousands of dollars upon the purchase of a home, and even more in interest over the life of the loan.

  • There are no distance requirements between the elderly parent and the individual (their child).
  • An adult child may already own their own home (primary residence)
  • Adult children will need to provide a letter of explanation outlining the intent to purchase a home for elderly parents who are financially limited.

Because you get to buy another home, and not have to classify it as a Second Home or Investment Property. You can actually classify the property as Owner Occupied, so in essence, you have 2 properties that can be owner-occupied. So instead of 20% down, you only need to put down 5%. A program is way better than an FHA Loan because, with a 640 score, you can obtain a 95% loan with no mortgage insurance There are some caveats, and they apply ONLY in 3 situations.
