Veterans Housing News – 2015

August 21st, 2015 by tisner

Over the years there hasn’t been that much to talk about when it came to housing for Veterans but as the months and years go by things are beginning to look up for those who have protected our country and are still continuing to do so. Let’s take some time and look at a few ways that veterans housing is improving for the better.

  • veterans housingMany companies are beginning to get on the band wagon of helping out veterans in our country. One of those companies is the Arizona Fisher House. This facility will provide housing for vets and their families who are being treated in medical facilities in Tucson Arizona. This housing will be temporary while the vets are being treated but it will be provided at no charge to the veterans.
  • Homes For Heroes is an awesome program that allows veterans as well as other home town heroes a chance to own a home of their own. In order to find out more about homes for heroes you can look them up online. This program offers great discounts to veterans and their families so that their dream of owning their own home can become a reality.
  • Marmion Apartments in Los Angeles is offering housing for 24 veterans and their families as well as 24 low income families. There are almost 3,000 homeless veterans in Los Angeles alone. That number is not acceptable and this is one of the reasons why changes are finally being made.
  • In Green Bay Wisconsin Veteran’s Manor will be opening in June for Veterans who need a place in which to live. This location will offer 50 one bedroom apartments in which to house 50 veterans and their families.
  • If Tennessee is where you call home you may want to check out Patriot Place which is a 34 unit apartment complex for Vets and their families.

These are just a few ways that things are beginning to look up in the housing market for veterans. I believe as time goes on we will see programs like this in our local community. After all veterans have done and how much they and their families have sacrificed their lives for our country’s freedom, this is the least that can be done. If you see a Veteran today, be sure to offer them your sincere thanks and appreciation for your freedom!

Tips For Qualifying For Down Payment Assistance

August 12th, 2015 by tisner

Most folks these days are living paycheck to paycheck and are having a hard enough time trying to pay all of their bills on time. This is one of the biggest reasons many people are looking for some sort of down payment assistance when it comes time to purchase a new home. For many people owning their own home cannot become a reality because they simply cannot afford to come up with the down payment needed. Rest assured if you are one of those people who have a hard time coming up with enough money to pay bills much less enough money for a down payment on a house, there is hope for you! Below are a few ideas for down payment assistance and what you need to do to qualify for it.

down payment

  • Figure out what your adjusted gross income is so that you will know if you can or cannot qualify for down payment assistance.
  • Complete a HUD application at your local HUD (The US Department of Urban Development) office.   In order to qualify for HUD your adjusted gross income must not be more than 80 percent of the local median income.
  • The down payment assistance program from HUD has a limit of 6 percent of the home’s purchase price or $10,000 so be sure that you know what size and price range you are looking for in a home before you apply for assistance. Knowing some of these things beforehand will possibly save you a lot of hassle in the long run.
  • You may possibly qualify for a grant that you do not have to pay back such as with the American Dream Down Payment Initiative Program. This program is known as the ADDI. If you need assistance with your home down payment be sure not to let this particular program slip through your fingers.

Hopefully these few ideas for down payment assistance will get you started in the right direction when looking for a home of your own. It is important that you don’t get discouraged and give up when looking for these types of assistance programs. They are out there for the taking you just have to be diligent to look for them and see which ones may be able to assist you in your home buying experience. It is all too easy to give up and not look deep into all the different home down payment assistance programs but I promise you if you do enough research you WILL likely find one out there that is just waiting to help you.
