INHP Rent-focused mortgage lending
It’s not uncommon for renters to begin exploring homeownership only to be stopped by their credit challenges. Even if they are committed to paying their rent bill each month, people can get stuck in long-term rental situations because of their imperfect credit.
At INHP, we are determined to find innovative ways to help families reach their goals, especially when we know there are successful renters who are capable of being successful homeowners when given the opportunity.
