What kinds of grants or programs may be available?
Home buying assistance programs can take many different forms depending on your state, county, city, and other factors. These include (but are not limited to): down payment assistance, closing cost assistance, vendor discounts, lower interest rates, tax credits, forgivable loans, and more!
How can the Hero Home Programs help me access local grants and benefits for my home purchase?
Navigating all the different grants or programs available can get difficult and time-consuming, especially when you’re left to do that research all on your own. Fortunately, our accredited mortgage advisors are well-versed in the research and the advocacy that goes into matching our local heroes to the best combination of benefits available to them.
It’s a complicated process of doing the research to find what programs are available in your local area, evaluating your eligibility for each program, determining your unique needs and wants as far as homeownership, and then matching you - not just to ANY grant or program - but to the best combination of benefits that will actually make a real, positive impact on your daily life.
What we’ve found is that when a homebuyer is left to do all this work on their own, this makes it more likely for them to disqualify themselves, get overwhelmed, discouraged, or misinformed somewhere along the way.
It’s not as simple as just googling which grants or programs are available to you. It can take an experienced mortgage advisor who really understands how these programs work (in addition to understanding your personal goals) in order to match you to the right benefits for your life.
Think of your Hero Home Programs advisor as your advocate. When evaluating your eligibility, they’re going to do their best to make a case for you, and therefore giving you the best chance possible of qualifying for the best benefits available.
But it’s not just about evaluating your eligibility. It’s also about understanding your goals and seeing what the best grants or benefits are available to actually help you.
How can I determine which home programs are right for me?
To find out which programs are right for you, it’s important to talk to an accredited advisor about your personal goals as far as homeownership, with essential questions like:
What’s your home buying timeline? Do you need to move fast, or would you rather take your time in finding the right home for you and your family?
What location(s) do you want to move to? What are you looking for in a neighborhood or community?
What’s your work history? Do you anticipate a change in your income or occupation in the future?
How long are you planning on living in your new home?
What kind of home do you need to accommodate your family? How many bedrooms/bathrooms do you need?
These questions help our accredited mortgage advisors to understand your personal goals, thus determining which grants or programs can make a real, positive impact on your daily life.
We don’t want to just give you access to ANY grant and call it a day. We’re here to match you to the BEST benefits that are actually going to help make a positive difference in your quality of life and your financial future.
The journey to homeownership can be complicated and, at times, even overwhelming. But with the Hero Home Programs, you don’t have to go it alone.
We want you to get the maximum benefits out of homeownership, with financial freedom and true financial options down the road.
That’s the Hero Home Programs difference.
