Value Guard

Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. Value Guard offers $100,000 in home equity protection on your home purchase at no additional cost*. You will be paid up to $10,000 if the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) housing market index for your area declines between the closing date and when you sell your home in the future - even if you sell for a profit.

  • 5 years of $100,000 in equity protection for free on purchases
  • Available on most properties with no additional appraisal required
  • Purchase additional coverage with Value Guard Extended

You are eligible to receive the $100,000 in equity protection at your closing, no matter the property value, if it is a purchase transaction. You can also purchase additional coverage above and beyond the $100,000 with our Value Guard Extended program should you wish.

By choosing Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. for your purchase financing needs, $100,000 of your home's value is automatically protected from a future local market downturn during the next 5 years.

After closing with Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp., you will receive a Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. Value Guard Certificate of Protection and will be contacted to go over all the details. The 5 year coverage period starts with a 24 month initial waiting period after closing, and the first 5% decrease of the FHFA housing market index is not eligible for a payout.

For more information or questions on Value Guard, please contact us any time.
