How Down Payment Assistance Works
It’s Great that there are down payment assistance programs available in all areas of Arizona. The government understands that a down payment is something that holds back many homeowners and they created these programs with grants to increase the number of homeowners and stabilize the housing market. Because of these programs, the rate of home ownership has increased throughout the state of Arizona. Government Programs are subject to physical budget cuts and as the economy strengthens the need for these programs may go away. Once allotted funds have been exhausted, the programs end for the year and take on no more home buyers. Many of the down payment assistance programs resume the following year on a new budget year, provided the program is still approved by local government.
The way the program agencies work in some cases is to give you money to purchase a home and you gain instant equity in the home and never have to pay it back. Then there are other cases where they give you a forgivable loan. What that means is, you will never make a payment on the loan and after a certain amount of time and you still own that home ( an example of 5 years) the loan just goes away. With you again, never making a payment on it and just like you never had a loan.
Why only specific lenders offer this?
Why do local banks do not have any of these programs available? Financial institution and banks do not provide down payment assistance loan products because they are considered higher risk. Banks consider it a high risk when a buyer has no financial investment in the home purchase. (no skin in the game) So banks generally will ask you for a down payment biased on a percentage of the purchase price.
The programs and lenders that we work with DO NOT require that you make a down payment and allow these programs to make it for you. Your down payment is covered through grants set aside by the local government. To make sure you get approved the paperwork has to be filled out properly and that is where we come in. If you have ever tried to fill out grant paperwork you do have to cross the T’s and Dot the I’s. There is no cost for this service and to get you connected with the correct program. We will review your individual situation in order to recommend the best available program free of charge.
