The Zero-Coupon/Interest-Only Fixed-Rate Mortgage: An Alternative for Funding Low-to-Moderate Income Housing
This proposal sets forth a concept for the public/private finance of owner-occupied, single-family homes for first-time homebuyers utilizing federal guarantees and private sector mortgages. Proposed funding requires no new tax revenues. The security that the program revolves around is a Zero-coupon/Interest-only Fixed-rate mortgage (ZIF). The ZIF has the potential to improve the allocation of resources for subsidizing low-income housing, to reduce risk exposure to rapidly declining property values, and to improve the self-esteem of a group of Americans who have been depressed for far too long by making homeownership a reality.
