We work with customers who are interested in assistance with their down payment and/or closing costs. We specialize in various CHFA programs that can help you move into a home with a $1,000 down. We're not only able to provide somebody with an assistance grant but CHFA also offers very competitive fixed rates as well as a tax credit program that can be added to your CHFA loan. It's truly a privilege to offer this loan program to our customers. CHFA only works with a limited amount of lenders in Colorado and we are very lucky to be one of them.
What if you have a down payment? We think that's fantastic and you should be very confident when beginning your home search, but we have always encouraged our customers to look at all their options. If you have saved 5k-15k for a down payment, you still might want to consider leaving your money in the bank and utilizing one of these programs so you have a savings cushion before you take out your loan. Yes, having a down payment is great but we feel that using majority of your savings as down payment might not always be the best idea. Crazy things can happen in life and it's always smart to protect your investment and your family.
