Close More Mortgage Business with Our Exclusive Tools:

the Deal Saver and MIHome

 For loan originators contending with higher interest rates and low inventory, it’s never been more important to close every possible deal and expand borrowers’ choices by offering flexible down payment options.

More of your homebuyers can become homeowners when you use the Deal Saver — Arch MI’s RateStar BuydownSM. Introduced in 2019, RateStar Buydown was a revolutionary innovation for the industry. It quickly became the preferred solution for LOs to create customized monthly MI premium payments suited to each borrower’s goals, including meeting GSE DTI requirements and lowering the PITI to mitigate higher interest rates.

Your Borrower’s Savings May Already Be Enough to Buy a Home
RateStar Buydown is part of our exclusive MI Home from Arch MI program, a comprehensive set of resources to help you structure and insure low down payment loans. In a recent survey, 53% of older Millennials (ages 34–42) cited down payments and closing costs as their biggest obstacle to homeownership. By overcoming this challenge with more affordable down payments, you can help Millennial renters buy now:

  • Flexible Arch MI guidelines work with down payments as low as 3%; gifts and grants are allowed.
  • Manufactured homes, condos, co-ops, single-family and construction-to-perm are all eligible.
  • AMGC Community programs allow 1% and even 0% down payments for eligible borrowers; gifts and grants are permitted.
  • Free homebuyer education is available via our website for borrowers using Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loan programs.
  • Appraisal gaps? Use our MI strategy to eliminate the need for extra cash at closing.
