There is a First Time Homebuyer Program in Delaware County for almost 20 years. Itâ€™s an initiative started by Delaware County Council to assist first time homebuyers purchase homes in the county.
â€œThis program is truly amazing in the way it prepares first time homebuyers for their home purchase,â€ said Duffy. â€œWe provide our participants with Credit and Budget Counseling, a thorough education in the home buying process and a real understanding of what it means to be a responsible Delaware County homeowner.â€
The program not only prepares participants with the knowledge necessary to buy a home but it also provides up to $5,000 to assist them with closing costs.
Since its inception, Delaware Countyâ€™s First Time Homebuyer Program has helped more than 800 families buy homes.
â€œItâ€™s still going strong, even in the down market,â€ said Duffy, â€œCurrently we have four settlements scheduled for next month aloneâ€¦people seem to be buying houses again.â€
