Saving for a down payment and closing costs can be a huge stressor for families looking to purchase their first home. At CFE we look for ways to add value to our member’s lives that help make their financial goals become a reality. This is why we are offering a First-Time Homebuyer Grant that provides access to matching funds to cover the costs of getting into your forever home.
For every $1 you contribute to the down payment and closing costs, you can receive up to $4 in matching funds, up to a maximum of $5,000. Paired with our First-Time Homebuyer mortgage, that grant can go a long way to reaching the minimum 3% of the purchase price down on a home.
Here are some of the other qualifications you must meet to participate:
- Contribute at least $1,000 toward the purchase of the home
- Occupy the home as a primary residence for at least five years
- Complete a homebuyer education and financial literacy course
Features & Benefits of our First-Time Homebuyer Mortgage:
- Fixed-rate 30-year term with interest rates starting at 4.625%*
- As little as 3% of the purchase price down
- No prepayment penalties
- Affordable closing costs and down payment assistance
