Buying a home can be stressful, especially if you juggle a schedule that is as constant as a hometown hero. Our teachers, healthcare officials, police officers, first responders, military, and/or firemen — their schedules may not lend themselves to be super great when it comes to buying a home. Not to mention, these heroes often work off the clock to make our communities great and keep them safe.
And that is on top of all the regular processes of buying a house and enjoying life. It can be stressful to dedicate precious time to finding the perfect home through thousands of listings. And then moving to find a realtor, a financing option, and the list goes on.
Hero Home Programs™ has financing options available, along with services like appraisals and titles. All of this is a way to say thank you to the everyday heroes that keep our homes safe.
How does a Hero Home Program work?
We work by partnering with financial institutions. It is not a bank or credit union, so you can still choose through the affiliates near you. It works by giving you discounts and grants at the city, county, and state levels that suit your needs. That’s right – we do all the research for you.
There is no minimum credit score needed, and it costs nothing upfront. There are no hidden fees either! Our team values honesty, respect, and integrity, much like the community heroes we serve. The process is completely transparent, and our affiliate lending institutions communicate with you throughout every step.
Perhaps you have heard of the Hero Home Program before and are wondering: is this worth it? And while we cannot speak to the barriers it may pose to every situation, there are a lot of benefits and reasons (which we’ll talk about in this article) to choosing a Hero Home Program.
This article will discuss the benefits of choosing a Hero Home Program for your house buying process. We will also discuss the qualifications, as well as how you can get started. So first, let’s talk numbers.
Saves you money
Depending on your situation, you could save thousands of dollars. That’s right. Thousands. Think about what you could do with that chunk of change! Especially for our teachers, who spend their money on classroom supplies, we know how much thousands of dollars can do. Not to mention, a little friendlier of a budget, no matter what type of hero you are.
On average, you could expect to save around $2,400. That equates to about 0.7% per every $100,000 of the purchase price of the home. Not to mention hundreds of dollars in lending fees and home service fees (inspection, title, etc.) that put even more money in your pocket.
So how does Hero Home Programs™ save you money?
Well, it’s simple. The program itself does all the research to find the best discounts possible and save you costs throughout the process of buying or selling a home. Hero Home Programs™ can even get you discounts on selling your house. That’s a win-win!
Here are just a few of the ways that Hero Home Programs™ saves you money:
- Access to state and municipal grants and tax rebates
- Reduced lending fees
- Credit on closing sales
- Vendor discounts on inspections, titles, and more
- Refinancing process available
Need we say more? When you partner with us, you get access to a wide variety of savings that you may not have found otherwise. And did we mention that you don’t even have to go digging? They do all the research for you!
How much money you save does depend on your situation. However, there are always a few hundred dollars available for saving through Hero Home Programs™. And even that few hundred dollars can go a long way. They look to save you as much money as possible, whether buying, selling, or refinancing your home.
Easy step-by-step process
It is really easy to get started. All you do is fill out an application and there is no application fee. The application simply asks for your name, contact information, and the type of hero you are. Some applications may also ask whether you want to sell, buy, or refinance. But that’s it!
And there are no hidden fees either! The process is 100% transparent, so you know the cost upfront. And that cost is low compared to what you can save. We want to keep more money in your pocket, which is why their services are free of any pop-up fees or ridiculous rates.
So what’s the catch?
There is none. They want to make the home buying process to be as smooth as melted butter. You can go about your day and your lives, and rest assured that we are doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work to make your dream home your reality.
And they will not abandon you afterward. Nope! We will stay with you until the job is done. Why? Because that’s what our heroes do! And they want to provide them with the same commitment throughout the whole process. They are with you every step of the process.
Excellent customer support
We value our customers, no matter what. You have done so much for the communities you serve, and they want to pay it back by helping you every step of the way. Not to mention, they pride themselves on providing top-notch customer service with our own staff. There is no transcontinental loop of calls to find the right person–just one phone call to your local Hero Home Program agent, and they can answer your questions or connect you to the right person.
We understand how valuable your time is. Whether as an on-call paramedic or as a teacher spending late nights grading papers, they want you to get back to what you need and love to do. And whether that means spending a day with your family after working a night shift or working an extra shift, they don’t waste your time. And that rolls into the customer service aspect as well.
Is the Hero Home Program right for me?
You may still be wondering if this loan program is right for you. Like we mentioned before, there is no cost to apply or sign up, and you aren’t locked into anything just by exploring your options. If you are interested, contact your lending institution that partners with Hero Home Programs™ to get started. Or you can apply with your name, the type of hero you are, and contact information, and they will reach out to you!
