NBT Bank Partnering With TRIP For Home In The City Program



NBT Bank Senior Vice President and Residential Mortgage Manager Joseph Culver announcedthat NBT will be partnering with the Troy Rehabilitation and Improvement Program (TRIP) and offering its Home in the City Program in Troy. Information about this program can be found by visiting www.nbtbank.com/loans.

Announcing the pledge Culver said, “Our Home in the City Program is a mortgage loan program designed specifically to encourage homeownership in cities served by NBT Bank and is an example of our commitment to support our local communities.”

Christine Nealon, TRIP Executive Director added: “This program supports our community-based financial education that brings wealth building to our neighbors who otherwise might not have access. This is a great example of how we partner with key stakeholders in response to community identified needs.”

In addition to homeowner education, the program offers potential homebuyers the opportunity to meet with an NBT Bank loan originator to help them determine the maximum amount of a home mortgage they qualify to finance and assist with the application process for a Home in the City loan.

The loan program provides:

  • 95% financing for the purchase of a one or two-family, owner-occupied residence for borrowers with a household income up to 120% of the HUD Area Median,
  • An interest rate reduction of 0.25% for eligible first-time homebuyers who complete homebuyer education classes, and
  • No mortgage insurance or additional monthly payments are required.

Participants may complete homebuyer education classes offered through TRIP. The Home in the City classes will help prepare participants for the responsibilities of homeownership and cover topics like home maintenance, how to select a realtor and mortgage lender, credit and debt management and qualifications for down payment and closing cost assistance grants.
