3. Must be a first-time homebuyer. A first-time homebuyer is defined by our funding source as:

a. The potential homebuyer or spouse has had no ownership in a principal residence for a three-year period ending on the purchase date of the property. If either spouse qualifies under one of these requirements, both are considered first-time homebuyers.

Meaning, neither you nor your spouse (if you have one) have owned your own home within the last three years.

b. The potential homebuyer is a single parent who has only owned a home with a former spouse while they were married.

Example: you are a divorced mom of two and you used to own a home, but it was a home you owned while you were married to your former husband.

c. The potential homebuyer is a displaced homemaker who has only owned a home with a spouse.

Example: You were previously married and are now divorced. You have owned a home in the past, but you owned that home when you were married.

d. The potential homebuyer is an individual who has only owned a principal residence not permanently affixed to a permanent foundation, according to applicable regulations.

Example: your primary residence is an RV or mobile home.

e. The potential homebuyer is an individual who has only owned a property that was not in compliance with state or local building codes which cannot be brought into compliance for less than the cost of constructing a permanent structure.

Example: Your primary residence has been deemed to be out of compliance with state and local building codes. The cost tot repair the house so that it is up to code is $125,000, but the home is only worth $115,000.

4. Buyer shall contribute a minimum of $1,000 from their own funds.

5. Buyer must qualify for a mortgage (any lender) with maximum debt-to-income (DTI) ratios of 34/46.

6. Must be willing and able to attend a 1:1 appointment with our HUD-approved Housing Counseling Agency partner. (Virtual appointments available.)
