There are several programs sponsored by D.C. government organizations that are here to help you buy your first condominium or home in downtown Washington, D.C. We can help you qualify for these programs, many of which provide financial assistance, and sometimes even free money, for you to use in buying a home.
Here’s some basic introductory information on DC programs that can help put homeownership in reach with thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars for you to use when purchasing.
- The DC Bond Program, with fixed rate, 30 year mortgages at 4.5% as well as up to $10,000 in downpayment or closing costs assistance (when available). This program has been discontinued and replaced with the DCHFA “Open Doors” Program as of 5/2013.
