Don’t think you can save enough money for a down payment on a home? CHANGE, Inc. can help! Partnering with the Northern Panhandle Home Consortium, local real estate agents and local lenders, CHANGE, Inc, has helped put families in a home of their own since 1996 by providing a forgivable loan up to $10,000 for their down payment and closing costs.
Study after study shows how little first-time home buyers know about the path to homeownership, especially when it comes to down payment requirements and options. The world needs “teachers” who will take the time to learn the full range of options for buyers more than ever.
If you think home ownership is out of your reach and rental costs just keep rising with no end in sight, the CHANGE, Inc. First Time Homebuyer Program may be the key to unlock the door to your own home. For more information on how to get started, contact the Joy Reese, Housing Counseling Program Manager at 304-797-7733 ext 1405 or visit the CHANGE, Inc. website, www.changeinc.org, under the Community Services Tab.
