It is a passion of mine to work with first time home buyers. To help many first time home buyers I also work with most of the local housing authorities including Chesapeake Redevelopment and Housing Authority (CRHA.)
Chesapeake Redevelopment and Housing Authority offers first time home buyers down payment and closing cost assistance.
I am not currently up to date with the amount of assistance CRHA is offering in 2013. In the past CHRA has offered up to $15,000.00 in down payment and closing cost assistance to first time home buyers.
To find out what they are currently offering contact CRHA at https://www.crhava.org/.
The community bank I work for Monarch Bank / Mortgage is a local lender that works with the Federal Home Loan Bank systems that offers grants up to $5,000.00 for first time home buyers so long as they qualify based on income and credit restrictions.
So if you work at putting all of the pieces of the puzzle together you may be able to make it work. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
