What does this mean for you? With the Communities First – Ohio program, buying a home that costs $100,000 could only require a down payment of $500 out-of-pocket. If you’re seeking an FHA loan, this might be the perfect way to buy a home sooner, even if you can’t make the 10 or 20 percent down payment required for a typical mortgage.
As of right now, not many lenders are approved for this program. Thankfully, your friends at Coldwell Banker Heritage Realtors recommend using Prime Lending to take advantage of this offer.
