Rewarding You for Your Service: Military Loan Programs










Home for the Brave Mortgage 
BankFive is proud to partner with MassHousing to offer the Home for the Brave Mortgage Program to our nation’s veterans. These affordable loans allow veterans and their families to purchase their primary residence – from a single-family to a four-family home – with a very small down payment. Plus, if you’re a disabled veteran, we can connect you with grants from the Veterans Administration to make accessibility upgrades to the property you’re buying.*

Operation Welcome Home
Operation Welcome Home combines a traditional 30-year, fixed rate first mortgage with a 0% interest, deferred down payment and/or closing cost assistance loan of up to 3% for first-time homebuyers who are active duty military; Veterans who served honorably; members of the Reserves or National Guard; and Gold Star Families.**

Features and benefits of the program include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • 97% Maximum LTV on one-unit property; 95% Maximum LTV on two- and three-unit property
  • Up to 100% CLTV financing on single family homes and condos
  • Competitive interest rates and fees
  • Quick and easy "conventional" mortgage process
  • Non-spouse co-borrowers allowed (compared to a traditional VA loan)
  • MIPlus Payment Protection unemployment benefits for eligible reservists and National Guard Members called to active duty
