IHDA Mortgage Opening Doors, or Abriendo Puertas, is designed to provide a safe and affordable lending program that allows families across Illinois the opportunity to break the cycle of renting and achieve a path to homeownership. Opening Doors will provide:

The Access Deferred mortgage is a safe, 30-year, fixed rate mortgage. That means your interest rate will never change. Are you concerned about saving for the down payment? Access Deferred offers a maximum of up to $7,500 in assistance for down payment and closing costs. Your contribution is limited to $1,000 or 1 percent of the purchase price, whichever is greater. So for as little as $1,000 out of pocket, you can get into your new home.

The Access Repayable mortgage is a safe, 30-year, fixed rate mortgage. That means your interest rate will never change. Are you concerned about saving for the down payment? Access Repayable offers a maximum of up to $10,000 in assistance for down payment and closing costs. Your contribution is limited to $1,000 or 1 percent of the purchase price, whichever is greater. So for as little as $1,000 out of pocket, you can get into your new home.

Mortgage rates keep rising, making home ownership unaffordable for millions of Americans. Since the start of the year higher rates have added about $1,000 to the monthly payment to buy a typical house. John Raoux/AP hide caption

Rates have more than doubled since the start of the year, making it much harder for would be homebuyers. The pace of home sales has declined for 8 consecutive months as frustrated buyers give up, unable to afford higher payments.

Rising rates have also slammed the lid on home prices, which have declined 1%, according to the latest reading of a closely watched home price index. Prices though were still up 13% compared to a year ago.

"Our forecast is for about flat home price growth in '23 and '24," said Joel Kan with the Mortgage Bankers Association. "But if you have flat home price growth for the country you're going to have lots of geographies that see outright declines."

The higher mortgage rates are causing extra pain for would-be homebuyers because prices rose so much during the pandemic - up as much as 40% in just two years. Kan says the number of people applying to get a mortgage is at its lowest level since 1997.

Here's a not-so-fun fact: The monthly mortgage payment it takes to buy the typical home in the U.S. is now up by a staggering 55% compared with the start of last year. That's because of the dramatic rise in mortgage rates in recent weeks on top of price gains in the hot housing market.

Back when Cacciatore was looking last summer, mortgage rates were under 3%. This week they've risen to over 5%. While that may not sound like much, it makes a huge difference when you're buying something as costly as a house. And Cacciatore was looking for homes in the price range of $600,000.

"It added like $700 a month in monthly payments," he says. "I mean, a ridiculous amount just from the interest rates." And that doesn't even factor in the big gain in prices over the past year as he's been trying to buy a home.

Gabriela Raimander, a real estate agent in St. Petersburg, Fla., says most first-time homebuyers she works with are giving up. The combined impact of higher prices and mortgage rates is just making homeownership unaffordable for many. Gabriela Raimander hide caption

Already, online searches for "homes for sale" are down 10% year over year, according to Daryl Fairweather, chief economist at real estate brokerage firm Redfin. The number of people going to look at homes is down a bit too.

That's, of course, exactly what the Federal Reserve is trying to do for the broader economy by raising interest rates. The Fed wants to cool off rising prices and inflation by making it more expensive to borrow money.

Still, it's unclear how much higher mortgage rates are going to go. Unlike rates on credit cards or other types of loans, mortgage rates move early and dramatically in anticipation of what the market expects, for example, the Federal Reserve to do with rates and its bond purchases over the next year. So mortgages could top out around this point, or they could keep rising.

That would be the case for anyone who already owns a home. They are in a much better situation than a first-time homebuyer, because when they sell their home, they will likely have a nice pile of money for a down payment on a new place.

For most home buyers, the purchase of real estate is one of the largest financial transactions they will make. Buyers purchase a home not only for the desire to own a home of their own, but also because of changes in jobs, family situations, and the need for a smaller or larger living area.

As his Action Plan reflects, President Biden believes the best thing we can do to ease the burden of housing costs is to boost the supply of quality housing. This means building more new homes and preserving existing federally-supported and market-rate affordable housing, ensuring that total new units do not merely replace converted or dilapidated units that get demolished.

We'll check your credit. During pre-approval we only perform a soft credit check, which does not affect your score. Later on in the process we may perform a hard credit check (with your permission, of course). Keep in mind, any other home loan credit checks within 45 days are treated as one inquiry, so multiple inquiries during this time won't additionally impact your score.

Your rate is based on today's mortgage rates and current housing market, but we also factor in your credit score, property location, loan amount, type and term to get you a personalized, up-to-date rate.
