Special Financing Programs Available

Special financing from Regions Mortgage may be available on the townhome condo we have listed at 5308 Chouteau’s Bluff.  In select areas of the city, there is no income limit to qualify and the purchase price may go up to the new jumbo limit of $510,000. The buyer does not have to be a first time buyer, nor do they have to be a current Regions depositor for this loan.  The stipulation is this must be the only residential property they own at the time they close the transaction.  It must be a single family residence – detached, attached or warrantable condo, no multi-family units.

You may think you can’t afford a river view like this. But a Regions Affordable 100 or Affordable 97 Loan could make this your new reality.

Notable Features of Affordable 100 & Affordable 97 Loans

Everbody who qualifies receives the same interest rate, from a 700+ score on the 100% loan down to a 620 score on the 97% loan. The rates are at an all-time low.  With Fannie, Freddie and FHA there is an increase in the interest rate and mortgage insurance for every 20 point drop in credit score. Regions underwrite all loans in house and retain servicing on all loan products – Fannie, Freddie, VA, FHA, USDA, jumbo and portfolio loans.  Regions does not sell loans to other servicers after closing.
