Innovative Programs to Serve Your Mortgage Needs

Keys on Time*

Welcome to the 20-day Close with your offer backed by the purchasing power of a full loan approval. With our Keys on Time program, your offer will be the most attractive in a competitive market where we will work with you to get full underwriting loan approval to ensure your loan will close lightning fast, even if you have not yet identified the property. We are 100% committed to owning what it takes to get your loan funded on or before the close of escrow. If your loan does not close on time, we will credit you $895 in closing costs.*

You can combine Keys on Time with our SecureLock program to have the security of a locked in interest rate even prior to making a purchase offer.

  • Over 90% of owner-occupied homes qualify
  • First-time and move-up homebuyers are eligible
  • Single-family, condos, investment, second-homes

*Not available in Oregon. The “Keys on Time” program is a limited guarantee that APMC will provide a credit to the borrower of $895 after the close of escrow if, due to some fault on the part of APMC, its originators or other APMC staff, a purchase transaction does not close until a date after the originally stated close of escrow date. The “Keys on Time” limited guarantee does not apply if the purchase transaction fails to close on or before the anticipated close of escrow date due to events/circumstances beyond APMC’s control, including but not limited to, delays caused by: an unacceptable or unexpectedly low appraisal value on the subject property, acts or omissions by the escrow or title company, second lien holder approvals, short sale approval, or loan conditions imposed by the lender that, despite reasonable diligence by APMC, are not met by any party in a timely manner. The “Keys on Time” limited guarantee trigger begins when the initial loan package is received by APMC’s Fulfillment center. The complete loan package must be received in the APMC Fulfillment center a minimum of 20 days prior to the COE date. Exclusions: The limited guarantee does not apply to the HARP program, reverse mortgages, FHA 203k, non-delegated jumbo products or any loans that require prior approval from an investor. The limited guarantee applies to purchase transactions only. All programs are subject to borrower and property qualifications. Rates, terms, and conditions are subject to change without notice.

Expanded Access

With our Expanded Access program, we have opened the doors to borrowers who need access to financing but don’t “fit” the standard agency or jumbo program guidelines.

The Expanded Access program provides financing options for borrowers that have difficulty documenting their income, or have debt-to-income (DTI) up to 50% (or even 55% on an exception basis).

Expanded Access also provides options to borrowers with a recent credit event such as a short sale/foreclosure or a mortgage late.

Home Ready

As an alternative to the FHA program, Home Ready is a conventional 3% down mortgage loan with even more flexible income qualification guidelines.

High Balance Solutions

If you are looking to finance a home that exceeds conforming loan limits, our High Balance Solutions program will get the deal done.

Under this program, you can split the loan amount between a first and second mortgage. This may result in lower monthly payments due to potentially lower rates available through conforming mortgage products.
