“Deb is incredibly knowledgeable of the market.”

“Deb is incredibly knowledgeable of the market. Her experience and organization put us at ease during the entire process. Her exceptional integrity and skill were on full display throughout the negotiation. I definitely appreciated the detailed verification and recommendation of all offers made. Her team is also a reflection of the high standards she sets for herself and others. I highly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell, especially in this volatile market.”

– JB, South Lyon

“They are honest, hard working and their follow through is second-to-none.”

“We first used the Ronayne Team in 2005 and have used them for every real estate transaction since. Lou and Deb know the local real estate market well. They are honest, hard working and their follow through is second-to-none. Listing our home was like being on auto pilot. The Ronayne team knows exactly what to do and exactly when to do it. They remained in constant communication and made a complex process easy for us. Multiple offers “above listing price” after one weekend on the market was an added bonus, too! If you are looking to buy/sell a home, the Ronayne Team is a wise choice. I highly recommend them.”

– AP, Northville, MI

“They set realistic expectations and continue to exceed them time and time again”

“Deb is incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of a real estate transaction and knows the value of her markets very well. She and the Ronayne Team are extremely responsive, reliable, honest, and trustworthy. They set realistic expectations and continue to exceed them time and time again. It has been a pleasure working with Deb on the buying and selling side of transactions and look forward to working with her for years to come. Highly recommend Deb and the Ronayne Team for any future real estate needs.”

Homeownership Could Be in Reach with Down Payment Assistance Programs

October 30, 20233 min read

A recent survey from Bankrate asks prospective buyers to identify the biggest obstacles in their homebuying journey. It found that 36% of those polled said saving for a down payment is one of their primary hurdles to buying a home.

If you feel the same way, the good news is there are many down payment assistance programs available that can help you achieve your homeownership goals. The key is understanding where to look and learning what options are available. Here’s some information that can help you.

You Can Qualify Even if You’ve Purchased a Home Before

There are several misconceptions about down payment assistance programs. For starters, many people believe there’s only assistance available for first-time homebuyers. While first-time buyers have many options to explore, repeat buyers have some, too. According to the latest Homeownership Program Index from downpaymentresource.com:

“It is a common misconception that homebuyer assistance is only available to first-time homebuyers, however, 38% of homebuyer assistance programs in Q1 2022 did not have a first-time homebuyer requirement.”

That means repeat buyers could qualify for over one-third of the assistance programs available. And if you’re a repeat buyer, you may still be able to take advantage of some first-time homebuyer programs, depending on your personal situation. That’s because downpaymentresource.com also notes many of the first-time homebuyer programs use the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s definition of a first-time homebuyer. Under their definition, you could qualify as a first-time buyer if you’re:

  • Someone who hasn’t owned a primary residence in 3 years.

  • A single parent who’s only ever owned a home with a former spouse.

That means no matter where you are in your homeownership journey, there could be an option available for you.

You May Be Eligible for Programs Based on Your Location or Profession

In addition to broader options available for repeat and first-time homebuyers, there are other types of down payment assistance programs that you could qualify for based on your location. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR):

“Many local governments and non-profit organizations offer down-payment assistance grants and loans, targeted to area borrowers and often with specific borrower requirements.”

Plus, there are programs and special benefits for individuals working in certain professions or with unique statuses, including teachers, doctors and nurses, and veterans.

Ultimately, that means there are many federal, state, and local programs available for you to explore. The best way to do that is to connect with a local real estate professional and your lender to learn more about what’s available in your area.

Bottom Line

Down payment assistance programs have helped many homebuyers achieve their dreams, and if you qualify, they could help you too. Let’s connect today so you can begin exploring your options.
