1% Down Program


Are you close to purchasing a home but don’t have enough cash on hand to cover the down payment? Altius Mortgage can help you qualify for the Conventional 1% Down with Equity Boost Loan Program.

This down payment assistance program is used with Freddie Mac’s Home Possible and Home Possible Advantage programs, which can give you an equity boost on your home purchase. It’s a suitable, affordable option for homebuyers in high-cost or underserved communities.

Key Features:

  • You put down 1%, your lender contributes 2%*, giving you 3% equity at closing
  • Great low rates
  • Close in 30 days or less
  • Conventional 30-year fixed program
