Home for the Brave Loans

BankFive is proud to partner with MassHousing to serve our nation's veterans.

As a veteran, you and your family deserve an affordable mortgage option that's flexible to fit your needs. Our Home for the Brave Loan is structured to help you reach your homeownership goals with favorable terms so you can stay within your budget.

We help you settle into a new home:

  • Eligible owner-occupied properties range from single-family to 4-unit homes.
  • Reduced down payments. Up to 97% financing available on single-family homes and condos, and up to 95% financing available for 2-, 3-, and 4-family homes.
  • Closing cost assistance available through MassHousing grants.
  • Disabled veterans can obtain grants from the Veterans Administration to make accessibility upgrades to the property they're purchasing.
