Mortgage Guarantee Program

The University will guarantee mortgage loans made by local banks for the purchase of a primary residence in the Lewisburg area up to 20% of appraised value or sale price (whichever is lower). Potential buyers must be moving into the area from a distance of 50 miles or more, and must apply for the mortgage guarantee program within five years of their date of employment. Banking regulations require a 5% down payment.
