Homebuyer AssistanceFinancing Programs

“Within Reach” $0 Down Grants – DC/MD/VA

The Within Reach Grant is a $0 Down home buying program with no repayment required. If you're eligible, you receive a grant based on up to 4.5% of the purchase price of the home you buy. This Grant is used to pay the down payment requirement on an FHA first time buyer mortgage. You can qualify if you earn UNDER 115% of the area media income (AMI) for the county you are purchasing in, and can buy an up to 2 unit property using the program.  Get Income Limits

Eligibility Requirements

The Within Reach Grant is just like any other mortgage, but with included Down Payment assistance. You have to be able to basically qualify to borrow money for a home purchase from an grant-authorized mortgage lender. You need steady income, a fair to good credit score of 620+, and have to meet certain other conditions. We use this program for zero down home buying for homes, condos and row homes priced at up to $424,100.
