There are tons of hidden costs of homeownership that can make buying feel insurmountable to a first-time buyer. Luckily, California Association of REALTORS® is helping out first-timers by paying their HOA dues. Yeah, it’s pretty cool. If you are considering a purchase in communities like Irvine, Rancho Santa Margarita or Ladera Ranch, chances are you could use help paying HOA dues, especially after you’ve already hit out your bank account with everything from a down payment to closing costs.

C.A.R.’s Housing Affordability Fund’s Homeowners Association Grant Program will provide qualified first time California homebuyers up to six months of HOA dues, not to exceed $2,500. The program begins this December, 2016 and you can take advantage by syncing up with a licensed REALTOR. Check out all the details in the C.A.R. Infographic below and contact us to be set up with an agent in your area who can help you take advantage of this and other first-time homebuyer programs.

If you would like more information and help taking advantage of this free money, Call me now.
