DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT DPA PROGRAMS
RAISE AWARENESS | MORE BUSINESS
The home buying process can be very intimidating to both first-time and previous homeowners. In addition, there's also a fairly common misconception that a down payment of 10 or 20 percent is absolutely necessary in order to purchase a home.
It is important that real estate and mortgage professionals are educated about available down payment assistance (DPA) programs and pass this information on to potential homebuyers. Many programs are not limited to first-time homebuyers either, which expands the opportunities even further.
