Pathway to Homeownership
Are You Ready?
Buying your first home is an exciting journey. You dream of your future, imagining how your home will feel, what it will look like. You choose your furniture and plan what each room will be used for. Maybe this room will be the creative space you’ve always wanted, that one will be a nursery.
But the most exciting of times can also bring anxieties. You may be worried about being able to afford the upfront costs of a new home like the down payment, closing costs, and more. At New American Funding, we believe that every person deserves a clear path to achieving their dream of homeownership. So, we created the Pathway to Homeownership initiative to alleviate some of your financial worries.
What is the Pathway to Homeownership Initiative?
The Pathway to Homeownership offers qualified borrowers in select areas up to $8,000 in assistance. These funds are not a loan that needs to be repaid and are available to first-time homebuyers in designated areas.
This program can also potentially be combined with other down payment assistance programs to offer you even more support as you build the life of your dreams.
Pathway Program Highlights
- Up to $8,000 in assistance: Can potentially be used to help with your down payment, closing costs, or other upfront costs, depending on the program you qualify for
- Designed for first-time homebuyers
- No income limitations: No minimum or maximum income limitations
- Down payments as low as 3%
- Can be combined with other DPA programs
There are requirements and restrictions to the NAF Pathway program. Borrowers must have a minimum credit score of 620 and the home must be a 1-unit, single-family home. They must also be first-time homebuyers.
Pathway is available in certain markets and there are eligibility requirements that are unique to the program. The loan officers at New American Funding will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program.
