Special Guest Lisa Whitman of Mortgage1 Introduces a new MSHDA Homebuyer Assistance program. $15 million has been allocated for the Homebuyer Assistance grant program that will assist first-time homebuyers purchasing a single-family/one-unit, owner occupied, principal residence. Eligible first-time homebuyers are defined as a person who has not owned a home as their principal residence for three years prior to the date of purchase. Non-military homebuyers are eligible for grants up to $3,000. Active military and veterans are eligible for grants up to $5,000. Neither grant can exceed 25% of the purchase price. Grant funds may be used with any first lien mortgage transaction and can be combined with MSHDA’s Down Payment Assistance. NOTE: Military is defined as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces or National Guard and Reserves.
