Texas Native American Home Loans

According to statistics, only about 50% of the Native American population in the United States own a home. This data is a surprise considering that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has a particular loan program set up to make homeownership more straightforward and accessible to Native Americans.

The HUD-184 Loan

The HUD-184 Loan is a federally-backed loan program by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  It was created specifically to provide Native American tribal members access to mortgage financing with flexible terms.

HUD-184 Loan Eligibility

The Section 184 Loan Program is open to any one member of a federally recognized tribe.  The loan is available to all Native Americans, first-time and repeat homebuyers, as long as they have a Tribal Membership or Citizen Card from a tribe officially recognized by the government.

One distinct advantage of this particular loan program is that only one of the applicants must be a Tribal member. You can qualify for a HUD-184 loan even if your spouse is not a member of any tribe and is the sole/primary earner in your household.

Are you interested in a HUD-184 loan? Here are some critical details you need to know before applying for the loan.

  • Credit Score: 

The HUD-184 loan does not require a minimum credit score, making it ideal for qualified but credit-challenged borrowers. Unlike most mortgage programs, borrowers with poor credit are not required to pay higher interest rates.

  • Debt-to-Income Ratio: 

Lenders generally use a 41% debt-to-income ratio to determine the loan size that borrowers can afford.

  • Borrower Income Limit: 

The HUD-184 Loan does not apply to borrower income limits.

  • Down Payment and Closing Costs: 

The HUD-184 loan has some of the lowest down payment requirements in the market. A 2.25 percent down payment is required for loans over $50,000 and 1.25 percent for loans less than $50,000. There is also a one-time 1.5 percent guarantee fee paid to the government. This money could come from your savings, investments, or gifts from family members. Tribal assistance is also accepted.

  • First-time and Repeat Buyers: 

Compared to other low-down-payment mortgage programs, this one is open to first-time and repeat home buyers. Eligible borrowers may participate in the program multiple times but are allowed only one Section 184 Loan at a time.

  • Buy, Build, Renovate: 

Qualified borrowers may use the HUD-184 Loan to purchase, build, or remodel a home.

  • Refinance: 

Many homeowners also refinance their existing loans with HUD-184 loans to get better terms.

  • Manual Underwriting: 

Rather than submitting documents to a computer that generates mortgage approvals or denials based solely on numbers, HUD-184 loans go through a detailed and thorough manual review process. This could mean a higher chance of approval and getting a mortgage that better suits your needs.
