With a few details from you, a WSFS Mortgage Loan Officer can determine what programs you might be eligible for.
The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (S.A.F.E. Act) requires Associates of WSFS Bank who act as residential Mortgage Loan Originators (MLOs) to federally register with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry. MLOs must obtain a unique identifier and maintain registration. Click here to see a complete list of WSFS MLOs and their Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) ID#. Consumers may look up MLOs by their NMLS ID# by clicking here.
1 May vary based on program underwriting guidelines. Home must be a primary residence located in a census tract where the population is at least a 50% majority minority census tract and the total household income cannot exceed 80% of the census tract median income as determined by the FFIEC Geocoding System/US Census.

Ask your WSFS Mortgage Loan Officer for more details. This is not a commitment to lend. Borrowers must meet underwriting guidelines and are subject to credit review and approval. To qualify for assistance, prospective borrowers must adhere to the program's geographic, income and purchase price guidelines.
