STEP 5 Submit Your Down Payment Loan Application Submit your down payment loan application and supporting documetation to your First Mortgage lender. The lender will forward your application to HTF. STEP 6 Down Payment Loan Commitment HTF will review your complete loan application and make a decision within working days. If you qualify, you will be issued a loan commitment. STEP 7 Escrow and Loan Closing Loan documents will be prepared for your signature. HTF will coordinate with the First Mortgage Lender and Title Company to fund and close your home purchase. *The Housing Trust Fund has a list of approved Community Partners where you can take a Homebuyer Education Training course, have your income certified, obtain pre-approval for your First Mortgage Loan and receive assistance in applying for a First-time Homebuyer Down Payment loan (see Appendix D). You may use any realtor or broker you choose to locate your home, and it is helpful if they have attended an HTF informational workshop. 2

3 Housing Trust Fund of Santa Barbara County Workforce Homebuyer Down Payment Loan Program I. PROGRAM OVERVIEW The Workforce Homebuyer Down Payment Loan Program is a program of the Housing Trust Fund of Santa Barbara County (HTF) to expand homeownership opportunities for local working families. The program helps bridge the homeownership affordability gap for Workforce homebuyers by providing 30-year deferred payment loans up to $42,000 per household to assist low-to-moderate income households in purchasing a home in the community. Funds can be used for down payment and closing costs for households who earn a maximum of 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI), adjusted for household size. Funding for the program has been provided through a grant to HTF from the State Department of Housing and Community Development Local Housing Trust Fund Program. The loans offered under this program are subordinate financing and have no current interest or principle payments. Instead, the interest rate is contingent upon on a share of the property s potential appreciation. The loan is due when the borrower sells or transfers the property, ceases to maintain the residence as his/her primary residence, converts the home to a rental property, or refinances the first mortgage (unless the refinance meets program exceptions, as defined in the homebuyer loan documents). Loans do not generally become due in the case of death or divorce when the beneficiary or remaining spouse uses the home for his/her primary residence. The program targets eligible cities in North County, including Buellton, Guadalupe, Lompoc, Santa Maria and Solvang, with special focus on the City of Santa Maria. The program removes a financial barrier to the dream of homeownership, enabling qualified working families to buy a home that provides a stable residence that strengthens the family and the neighborhood. II. HOMEBUYER ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS Homebuyers seeking a down payment loan must meet the following minimum criteria: Applicants must be residents of or work within Santa Barbara County. Applicants must be a First-Time Homebuyer and not have owned a principal residence within three (3) years from the date of program application. Applicants must be a low-income household and have the household income certified by an HTF-approved Community Partner. The homebuyer must occupy the home as the primary residence for the duration of the loan. The home size must be sufficient for the household so that there is no overcrowding. Applicants must attend and complete a HTF-approved Homebuyer Education Training class. Applicants must secure pre-approval of a 30-year fixed rate First Mortgage loan from a participating lender and have satisfactory credit and job/income stability. Applicants must contribute at least 3.5% of the home purchase price and closing costs and must invest any other liquid assets in excess of $15,000 for the purchase of the home. 3

8 Sales Example with Shared Appreciation Example #1: The homebuyer purchases a home for $245,000, using a $40,425 down payment loan from the Housing Trust Fund, plus 3.5% or $8,575 of his/her own cash. The homeowner installs $5,000 in eligible home improvements and resells the home after five years for $275,000. The owner will repay the Housing Trust Fund the principal loan amount of $40,425 plus the lesser of a share in the appreciation of the home or 8.5% annual interest on the loan. The owner is responsible for paying for the transaction costs of the resale of the home (realtor fees, etc.) The owner s equity in the home has also increased by making payments of principle on the first mortgage loan. Share of Appreciation Percentage (Contingent Interest): Original purchase price of the home..$245,000 Total Housing Trust Fund Shared Appreciation Loan...$ 40,425 Share of Appreciation (Contingent Interest) Percentage = $40,425/$245,000 = 16.5% Calculation of Share of Appreciation (Contingent) Interest: Share of Appreciation Interest Percentage x (Resale Value Value of Improvements Purchase Price) = Share of Appreciation (Contingent Interest) Share of Appreciation Interest Example: *One possible gross Resale Value, $275,000 Original Purchase Price...$245,000 Accrued Appreciation (Purchase Price minus Resale Value).....$30,000 Less Value of Home Improvements (as determined by appraisal)...$5,000 Amount subject to Share of Appreciation (Contingent Interest).$25,000 Housing Trust Fund Share of Appreciation Percentage % Owner share subject to Share of Appreciation..83.5% Housing Trust Fund Share of Appreciation (16.5% x $25,000) $4,125 Owner Share of Appreciation (83.5% x $25,000)....$20,875 Alternative Option: 8.5% Simple Annual Interest Original Shared Appreciation Loan Amount $40,425 Multiply by.085 (8.5% simple interest)...$ 3,436 Multiply by 5 (home sold after five years) $17,180 Given the above assumptions as an example, the Owner would repay the Housing Trust Fund principal loan amount of $40,425 plus the lesser of the Share of Appreciation or 8.5% interest. In this example, the lesser amount is the $4,125 Share of Appreciation. 4 *HTF offers no assurance or guarantee whatsoever that the Home will increase in value to any extent, or that it will not decrease in value. This example is solely created to demonstrate how to calculate the Share of Appreciation. 8

9 Refinance Example with Shared Appreciation Example #2: The homebuyer purchases a home for $200,000, using a $30,000 down payment loan from the Housing Trust Fund, plus 5% of the home price or $10,000 of his/her own cash. The homeowner lives in the home for 15 years, during which the owner installs $20,000 in eligible home improvements. The owner decides to refinance and repay the Housing Trust Fund based on the Fair Market Value of the home at that time, which is established by appraisal of the home. The owner will repay the Housing Trust Fund the principal loan amount of $30,000 plus the lesser of either a share in the appreciation of the home or 8.5% annual interest on the loan. The owner is responsible for paying for the refinance costs of the home. The owner s equity in the home has also increased during the 15 years by making payments of principle on the first mortgage loan. Share of Appreciation Percentage (Contingent Interest): Original purchase price of the home..$200,000 Total Housing Trust Fund Shared Appreciation Loan...$ 30,000 Share of Appreciation (Contingent Interest) Percentage = $30,000/$200,000 = 15% Calculation of Share of Appreciation (Contingent) Interest: Share of Appreciation Interest Percentage x (Resale Value Value of Improvements Purchase Price) = Share of Appreciation Share of Appreciation Interest Example: One possible gross Resale Value, $300,000 Original Purchase Price.....$200,000 Accrued Appreciation (Purchase Price minus Resale Value)......$ 100,000 Less Value of Home Improvements (as determined by appraisal)...$ 20,000 Amount subject to Share of Appreciation (Contingent Interest)...$ 80,000 Housing Trust Fund Share of Appreciation Percentage....15% Owner share subject to Share of Appreciation..85% Housing Trust Fund Share of Appreciation (15% x $80,000).$12,000 Owner Share of Appreciation (85% x $80,000)..$68,000 Alternative Option: 8.5% Simple Annual Interest Original Shared Appreciation Loan Amount $30,000 Multiply by.085 (8.5% simple interest)...$ 2,550 Multiply by 15 (home refinanced after 15 years). $38,250 Given the above assumptions as an example, the Owner would repay the Housing Trust Fund principal loan amount of $30,000 plus the lesser of the Share of Appreciation or 8.5% interest. In this example, the lesser amount is the $12,000 in Shared Appreciation. 5 HTF offers no assurance or guarantee whatsoever that the Home will increase in value to any extent, or that it will not decrease in value. This example is solely created to demonstrate how to calculate the Share of Appreciation. 9
