Programs for First Time Homebuyers

ARE YOU READY TO PURCHASE YOUR FIRST HOME?

We work with the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) to provide several affordable loan options for helping you achieve your dream of home ownership. For the First Time Homebuyer, OHFA offers 30 year fixed rate FHA, VA, USDA-RD and conventional mortgage loans with generous income and purchase price limits. Down Payment Assistance allows a First Time Homebuyer to choose either 2.5% or 5% of the home’s purchase price. The assistance can be applied toward your down payment, closing costs or other pre-closing expenses; and is forgiven after 7 years. OHFA provides eligible first time homebuyers with a tax credit to help with home ownership expenses. The credit is up to 40% (up to $2,000) of their annual mortgage interest when using an OHFA mortgage loan.
