4% Down Payment Assistance Now Available!

Pima Tucson Homebuyer’s Solution Program just may be the answer for buyer’s wanting to purchase a home in the Tucson area and needing down payment assistance. This program offers eligible candidates a 4% grant that may be used towards a down payment or closing costs. This grant does not have to be repaid unless there is an act of fraud involved and unlike previous assistance programs this one is available to non-first time homebuyers too. Another notable fact of this program is that it may only be used with government loans such as FHA, VA, or USDA loans for homes purchased in Pima County.

Utilizing funds from the Community Investment Corporation, this down payment assistance can be a huge benefit to many Tucson area buyers.  Full program details are available from a participating lender who can also discuss the rates which are available at that time too.  The loan process begins after a lender has qualified the candidate and in order to reserve funds in the program an agreed upon purchase contract must exist.  The program fees which must be paid at closing and can’t be financed are just $460.  Lenders may take a 1% origination fee, but no discount fees may be charged.  Other charges by a lender that are reasonable and customary with other loans may also be incurred.
