**Homebuyer Plus account must be open for a minimum of six (6) months to qualify for both the deposit credit and the closing cost credit. A matching deposit credit of $500 will be applied toward your initial account deposit. The closing cost credit will be applied toward eligible closing costs on a first position purchase mortgage originated with Merchants National Bank. The home and borrower must meet all the eligibility requirements as outlined in the Ohio Homebuyer Plus Participation Statement, as issued by the state of Ohio, and Merchants National Bank standard mortgage underwriting guidelines including credit approval. FHA and VA mortgages are excluded from the promotion. The closing cost credit has no cash value, and any unused funds will be forfeited. Closing cost credit will not count toward pre-paid fees, mortgage insurance, or non-customary closing costs. Closing cost credit cannot be combined with any other offers, discounts, or coupons. Additional restrictions may apply; speak to a mortgage loan officer for details. Please contact your tax advisor on potential income tax deductions. Program subject to change or discontinue at any time.
