HOUSE— Homeownership Opportunities Using Shared Equity

The HOUSE program is available for homebuyers who work with a nonprofit housing organization and agree to share their home's appreciation with future buyers in exchange for purchase assistance. The nonprofit organization and homebuyer agree to keep the property affordable for future homebuyers by sharing any profit when the home is sold.

For complete details on these first time home buyer programs available to Vermont residents, visit the Vermont Housing Finance Agency website.

It is highly recommend that you also visit the First Time Home Buyer Grants page for free assistance with the down payment. This will make it possible for many people to qualify for a first time home buyer loan who wouldn't have qualified without the grant assistance.

Best Lender For First Time Home Buyer Loans

Unfortunately, some lenders do not like to work with first time home buyers (due to not having a track record), and prefer instead to only provide mortgages to people who have previously owned a home. If you do not need help with the down payment and are not in need of any state program, search for a lender that has great rates, an easy online application, and welcome first time home buyers. Additionally find one that has not been as severely hurt by the subprime mortgage crisis and are still approving the majority of applications.
