How Our Programs Help First-Time Homebuyers
Our down payment lending programs expand the pool of potential homebuyers in our region, and can be the difference between someone being able to afford a house and not buying a house at all. A 20% down payment on a house in the greater Bay Area can easily pass six figures, which is a lot more than most people can save. Not only does a 20% down payment help a first-time homebuyer avoid expensive mortgage insurance, but it can make the payments for the house itself more affordable.
In addition to down payment assistance, we administer a below market purchase program in Santa Clara to help buyers whose incomes fall below a certain threshold purchase homes priced lower than the market rate.
