Find a VHDA Qualifying Home or Condo
Finding a home that qualifies for Zero Down assistance or other financing programs does not have to be stressful. Once you determine your basic eligibility, you’re going to have to find a home or condominium in a qualifying part of Northern Virginia. It also has to be a home, townhome or condominium that you can already basically afford. The VHDA Down Payment Program only helps with Down Payment issues, not basic monthly affordability or credit-worthiness.
The Northern Virginia real estate market can be complicated and tough to navigate on your own, particularly if this is your first time trying to purchase a home or condo. We highly recommend that you work with a professional Real Estate Agent who specializes in working with first time buyers or buying assistance programs. The creator of this informational website are here to help you successfully purchase a home in Maryland:
- UrbanLand Company (the company running this website) has a team of first time buyer specialist Agents who regularly work with new buyers just like you. We run twice-weekly Free Home Buyer Workshops at our offices in the U Street Corridor, on Tuesdays at 5:30pm and Saturday mornings at 10am. These are small group sessions that highlight programs like VHDA and how to actually use them to buy in the DC / MD / VA markets. Check our Facebook Events calendar or email us directly to RSVP.
- We are experts in area buying assistance programs like the Maryland Mortgage Program, the “DC Open Doors” $0 Down program and many other private lender-driven financing programs like FHA, the FHA 203k fixer-upper program, and many more. We have a track record of successfully helping area residents use these programs to actually purchase.
- If you’re thinking of buying ‘brand new construction,” our team can strategically represent you in your dealings with the developer/builder through our New Construction Buyer Registration service offering. We have sold over 1,000 units since 2002 and also routinely represent the developers themselves in the sale of new homes.
- There may be hidden costs tied to a property. This can include needed condo/HOA fees, parking fees, necessary repairs, quick & easy renovations, etc. It is the job of your Agent to help identify all costs!
