Cook County Home Advantage
Program Approved Lenders

Here is the list of lenders who are currently approved to offer the Cook County Home Advantage Program. Stay tuned! This list is subject to grow quickly. If you'd like us to contact your preferred lender about offering the Program, please let us know.

Unfortunately, we are not able to steer or direct you to a specific Lender.  When reaching out to the program approved Lenders keep the following in mind:

  • While the Lender is approved under the Cook County Home Advantage Program, not every Loan Officer (LO) is knowledgeable and active in the Cook County Home Advantage Program. When contacting a Lender, ask to speak with a Loan Officer that is familiar with the Cook County Home Advantage Program*.
     

  • Advise the Loan Officer of the purpose of your call and that you are seeking to use the Cook County Home Advantage Program. Ask how many Cook County Home Advantage Program loans they have processed in the past 6 months / past year.
     

  • Each Lender establishes their Lender fees. These fees can vary greatly by Lender. Ask if they charge an origination fee on the Cook County Home Advantage Program transactions and if they do, how much. Origination fees ARE NOT a requirement of the Cook County Home Advantage Program, but a choice each Lender makes.
     

  • Decide who to work with based on the information you receive and the confidence you have in the Loan Officer*.
     

* If you are not satisfied with the Loan Officer’s knowledge, answers, guidance, and / or how they communicate with you, etc… end the conversation and call another Lender / Loan Officer. There are many experienced, helpful, and committed Loan Officers that are experts in the Cook County Home Advantage Program who would gladly work with you.
