At Next Step, our goal is to help hardworking individuals and families achieve the goal of owning their home. The SmartMH program is a key driver that helps us deliver on this goal. In partnership with Freddie Mac, the SmartMH program provides a way for prospective home buyers to receive the housing counseling and education services they need to successfully finance and purchase a new, energy-efficient manufactured home.
Our lending partners are important stakeholders in this effort. Lenders who work to help ensure that families make home financing choices that make the most sense for their home purchase. The video below details how our lending partners use the SmartMH Program in their everyday interactions with borrowers.
