State Bond Programs

Several states offer low interest home loans and other housing assistance for qualified low- and moderate-income buyers. For example, the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PFHA) offers low-interest, fixed-rate 30-year mortgages. These loans are offered through approved lenders. After closing, the state agency acquires the loans and borrowers make payments directly to the agency.

Under federal law, to qualify for state-sponsored home purchase loans, buyers must fall within certain annual income limits. The loans are typically only available to first-time buyers or to buyers who have not owned and occupied a primary residence for a period of time. Limits also apply to the purchase price of the home; these limits often vary by location within the state. Buyers may be required to take credit counseling and/or homebuyer education courses.

In addition to low-interest loans, borrowers also may be eligible for down payment and/or closing cost assistance.

Mike, Thank you so much for all of the time and energy you spent preparing us and executing our mortgage for our very first home. Your responsiveness and wealth of knowledge made us feel at ease and confident as we worked through the (at times) very confusing process! We have already recommended you to a co-worker! Many Thanks
