Partners Software Online, via the Atlanta Fed
Partners software is designed to serve as a learning tool and development aid for bankers, community groups, government agencies and other community development practitioners interested in providing home purchase loans to low- and moderate-income persons. The program determines whether a potential homebuyer can qualify for a home purchase loan given the underwriting criteria and financial information provided. The software illustrates how personal financial factors and loan underwriting techniques impact home purchase loan applications, and offers solutions to overcome barriers for applicants who may not qualify for conventional home purchase loans. In addition to determining loan eligibility, Partners also contains loan amortization schedules, equity build-up calculations and secondary market considerations.
