Home Plus

The social and economic benefits of home ownership are many.  A home creates an asset that provides the ability to create wealth, borrow and achieve self-reliance.  Plus, renters may actually realize monthly savings on buying vs. renting.  Yet with increasing rents, stagnant wages and high levels of student loan debt, it can be VERY difficult for first-time or boomerang homebuyers to save enough money for a down payment. 

The very popular HOME Plus Home Loan Program seeks to eliminate this hurdle, offering a pathway to homeownership by giving creditworthy renters who can qualify for a mortgage, but cannot afford the down payment and or closing costs, the funds to move forward.

Administered by the Arizona Industrial Development Authority, the HOME Plus Home Loan Program provides a 30-year fixed-rate first mortgage with down payment assistance (DPA) grant ranging from 0% - 5% depending upon the new underlying mortgage. The DPA is equal to a percentage of the initial principal balance of the mortgage loan. DPA is equal to a percentage of the initial principal balance of the mortgage loan. DPA is only available in conjunction with a HOME Plus mortgage.

Program Highlights:

  • Mortgage for the purchase of an owner occupied, Primary Residences in Arizona.
  • Borrower(s) annual income not to exceed $99,170.
  • Purchase price limit not to exceed $396,680.
  • One borrower must complete a homebuyer education course before closing.
  • Reduced mortgage insurance premiums on conventional (Fannie/Freddie) mortgages.
  • All borrowers on the mortgage must meet the minimum applicable credit scores as well as the new underlying first mortgage agency/GSE guide
