1st Time Homebuyers
Our Personalized First Time Homebuyer Assistance
We know how special the first-time home buying journey is. But we also know that this journey can be a challenging one if you don’t have a trusted team on your side. We are with you every step of the way to help you settle into your dream home!
Making Your Home Buying Dreams a Reality
We offer numerous mortgage programs to promote homeownership among low to moderate-income individuals throughout Rochester, NY and beyond. Through our partnership with The State of NY Mortgage Agency (SONYMA), the traditional programs offer low interest mortgages for first-time homebuyers.
Homebuyer Dream Program
With Family First and the Homebuyer Dream Program, you can get up to a $20,000 grant to help you purchase your first home!
The HBD is a grant program offered to eligible first time home buyers that provides up to $20,000 on a first come first serve basis. Grant money can be used towards your down payment and closing costs and as credit towards an approved homeowner counseling program.
This grant program is through the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York. It’s important to get pre-approved before then so you’ll be ready to go.
