Orange, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2014
Santa Ana is working to bolster its community through the deployment of down payment assistance programs offering substantial assistance with down payments on homes. Through offering said program, the city plans to foster a more stable community as homeownership means that residents will have long-term financial obligations in the city. The program is offered to first-time homebuyers. First-time homebuyers are defined as persons who have not owned a home in the past 3 years. Broadview Mortgage Orange would like to encourage all prospective buyers seeking homes in the city of Santa Ana to take advantage of this program to supplement Broadview Mortgage loan products such as conventional, VA, or HFA programs to be paired with the down payment assistance.
The city of Santa Ana disclosed in a press release that the requirements for said program are as follows:
The minimum down payment assistance requirements are:
- Must be pre-qualified for a 1st Mortgage
- Must be a first time homebuyer
- 3% down payment of own funds
- Must complete the Homebuyer Counseling program
- Home must be located in Santa Ana
- Borrowers must have acceptable credit history
- Meet income requirements

5 Persons/ $ 79,100
6 Persons/ $ 84,950

Applicants must be approved by the city before they choose a home. The OC Register quotes Shelly Landry-Bayle, the city of Santa Ana’s housing manager, stating, “Qualified applicants might be eligible for a down payment assistance loan of up to $40,000. The loans are offered at 0 percent interest, and participants don’t have to repay the loan until they sell the home,” but applicants should also be aware that, “the city will be able to fund an estimated 10 down payment loans this fiscal year,” so it is imperative that applicants act fast.
