If you’re working with clients whose lack of down payment funds has kept them out of the housing market, the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency has mortgage products that can help. Our NC Home Advantage Mortgage™ offers competitive rates and down payment assistance up to 5 percent of the loan for move-up and first-time buyers. First-time buyers (those who haven't owned a home as their principal residence in the past three years) and military veterans with lower incomes may be eligible for $8,000 in down payment help with the NC 1st Home Advantage Down Payment.
Your first-time buyers and military veterans may be eligible for the NC Home Advantage Tax Credit, which offers up to $2,000 a year in federal tax savings for buyers who apply and are approved by us for a Mortgage Credit Certificate prior to their home purchase.
Our mortgage products are offered through participating lenders statewide so that you can easily find a partner in your community to help your buyers. Learn more below to see how we can help you reach more buyers and sell more homes.
