[ The latest news for Minnesota Housing homeownership lender partners ]
Reminder: Gap Financing
If the appraised value of the home comes in lower than the purchase price, borrowers are still able to use a Minnesota Housing downpayment and closing cost loan. However, borrowers may not use Minnesota Housing downpayment and closing cost loan funds to cover the difference between the appraised value and purchase price. All other underlying product guidelines apply.
