The CMG Home Loans Halal Program is a mortgage solution that is designed to meet the needs of Muslim borrowers who want to purchase a home without having to pay interest. The program uses a lease-to-own structure, which is compliant with Islamic law, which prohibits the payment or receipt of interest.
Under the Halal Program, borrowers enter into a lease agreement with the lender, and the lender purchases the home on behalf of the borrower. The borrower then makes monthly lease payments to the lender. At the end of the lease term, the borrower has the option to purchase the home for a pre-agreed price.
The Halal Program offers a number of benefits to Muslim borrowers, including:
- Compliance with Islamic law: The Halal Program is designed to be compliant with Islamic law, which prohibits the payment or receipt of interest. This is important to many Muslim borrowers who want to follow their religious beliefs.
- Flexibility: The Halal Program offers borrowers flexibility in terms of their monthly payments. Borrowers can make payments that fit their budget, and they can also make lump-sum payments to reduce the principal balance of their loan. This flexibility can be helpful for borrowers who are experiencing financial hardship or who want to pay off their loan early.
- Affordability: The Halal Program can be more affordable than traditional mortgages for Muslim borrowers. This is because borrowers are not paying interest on their loan. The lender also typically charges a lower markup on the purchase price of the home, which can further reduce the cost of the loan.
- Peace of mind: The Halal Program can provide borrowers with peace of mind knowing that they are following their religious beliefs.
- Building equity: Borrowers who participate in the Halal Program can build equity in their home over time. This equity can be used to finance other purchases or to help the borrower downsize their home in the future.
- Long-term financial stability: The Halal Program can help borrowers achieve long-term financial stability by providing them with a way to purchase a home without having to pay interest on their loan.
The Halal Program is a great option for Muslim borrowers who are looking for a mortgage solution that is compliant with Islamic law, offers flexibility and affordability, and can help them achieve long-term financial stability.
In addition to the benefits listed above, the Halal Program can also help borrowers build their credit history. This is because borrowers are making monthly payments to the lender, which can be reported to the credit bureaus. A good credit history can make it easier for borrowers to qualify for other loans and credit products in the future.
