Community News & Events for Feb. 13
The down-payment assistance program administered by People Incorporated of Virginia helps first-time homebuyers with funding that may be used for closing costs and a down payment.
The program serves eligible homebuyers on a first-come first-served basis within Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah and Warren counties. The amount of assistance is capped at the lesser of either 10 percent of the sales price or $7,500. This is secured as a second, interest-free lien against the property that is forgiven when the borrower fulfills the affordability period.
Qualified households are first-time homebuyers who have not owned a home within the last three years. Eligible households also must contribute a minimum of 1 percent of the sales price toward the purchase, have the ability to receive a home loan as determined by a lender, complete a free homebuyer class and earn a low or moderate income. The property being purchased must also meet program requirements.
