How Your Home Loan Benefits Work
Cash Savings – Refinance
Texas employees that refinance their home mortgage loan through the Employee Home Loan Benefit Program receive one-half point (0.50%) reduction in origination or closing costs on a primary or secondary residence.¹
Cash Savings – Purchase
Purchasing a home is an expensive endeavor. Besides the down payment, there are also numerous closing costs a buyer is responsible for such as escrow fees, title insurance, lender fees, appraisal fee, prepaid interest, property taxes, etc. These additional costs can add up to thousands of dollars and sometimes keep a person from realizing their dream of homeownership. That's where the Employee Home Loan Benefit Program can make a dramatic financial difference. When employees use the program to purchase a new home they will receive significant cash credits in escrow that can offset many of their closings costs.
How it works
The employee's program Partnering Real Estate Agent will contribute 10% of the commission they receive to the employee as a credit towards closing costs. In addition, Acquest Lending, Inc. will contribute 0.50% of the loan amount as an additional credit in escrow when the mortgage loan funds through them.
These credits can amount to several thousand dollars! For example, on a sample purchase transaction in Texas where the home price is $200,000 and the employee puts a 5% down payment, the credits to the employee could save them as much as $1,300!2
These credits are on top of any price reductions or concessions the real estate agent may be able to negotiate!
Employees are eligible to participate in the benefits program if they are active, regular, full-time/part-time employees.
Eligible employees may also enroll
- Their spouse
- Their domestic partner
- Their children over age 18
Human Resource studies have shown that a comprehensive benefits package not only creates a great corporate atmosphere leading to happier, more productive employees, but it can also lead to increased employee retention.
