Advantages to Purchasing a Home in a Target Area
In order to promote economic diversity in our most distressed neighborhoods, eligibility requirements are relaxed for persons who purchase homes in target areas.
- Do not need to be a First Time Home Buyer
- Higher Income Limits
- Higher Purchase Price Limits
It is much easier to qualify for home ownership if you purchase a home in a targeted area!
