Hello,

Can anyone tell me about home ownership programs being offered by cities or counties?

I already spoke to the lending authority about the state run programs and they told me some cities and counties also have their own.

Thanks

It would help to know what cities or counties you're looking at. It's a big state.

Yeah we know
We are retired so not real picky.
We are looking all over.
Pretty much drew an east west line through Aimes and looking at anything below that.

I figure there must be a list of cities and counties with programs that we can get somewhere?
May as well focus on places that have programs rather than search the entire bottom part of the state. only to find out they have none.

So I really can't tell you more specifically than that since the places with programs would be the focus of the search IF someone can clue me in. Seems as good of a reason to focus our search as any

Here you go.

Home - Neighborhood Finance Corporation

DS bought his first house in Des Moines near Drake, 3 years out of college, through this program in 2010. He had a very good job, but a down payment of something less than 10% and little credit history. As I remember the interest rate was decent and they were very helpful. He WAS a bit unhappy when the amounts of the $10K loan which were forgiven over time (which he used to replace ancient windows) were reported as taxable income. I wasn't surprised!
