“Maria wanted a home for her daughter. Altgage increased her budget by $30,000 and helped find a $3,800 grant.”

Maria, like many Americans is an immigrant. She serves her community as a "personal shopper" at HEB, a Texas grocery store. Maria is a devoted mom and wanted an affordable home for her small family. After paying nearly half of her income as rent, Maria wanted to buy a home by and build equity. However, high interest rates limited her homebuying budget to $160,000. Maria discovered Altgage through our realtor referral network and used the low rates on offer to elevate her homebuying budget by $30,000. She also received a 2% down payment grant totaling $3,800. At Altgage, we believe in the American dream of homeownership and "affordable mortgages for everyone.”

“Chad and Tstatsa beat their local credit union's interest rate by 0.5% and used Altgage to transfer their home appraisal through a tricky process.”

Tsatsa and Chad met at UC Santa Barbara while pursuing their PhDs in Chemical Engineering and Computer Security. Chad runs Allthenticate, a security startup that believes “all passwords are weak” and instead helps users store security tokens that unlock everything from computers to physical doors. Tsatsa immigrated from Mongolia an loves spending time with her brothers when she’s not working as a chemical engineer. Chad and Tsatsa purchased their first home in Texas after learning the art of the possible in mortgages with Altgage. Closing day was also Tsatsa's birthday and a new home seemed like the perfect gift.

“Rob boosted his credit over 50pts to qualify for an FHA loan as a first time homebuyer.”

Rob works for a Swiss security firm and recently transferred to the US. Buying a home with limited credit history can be a challenge, but Altgage's helped Rob and his wife, Melaine, quickly boost their credit and qualify for an FHA loan. It was a dream come true to finally have the space they've always wanted. Melaine also introduced her sister, Tashna, a nurse practitioner to finance her home with great rates and concierge service that every hoembuyer deserves.

“Casey financed her retirement home, helped her son and several friends buy their dream home with market low rates”

After a lifetime in real-estate, Casey built her dream home in Horseshoe Bay. As with every construction, homes takes longer and cost more than expected. Altgage was able to boost Casey's credit by over a 100 points and provide financing just when it was needed to the most to bring her dream home to life.  

After being impressed with Altgage's rates, credit boost, and 15 day closings, Casey introduced several family, friends and clients to get great deals on home ownership.
