Yes, You Can Buy a House. Even in this Market.

June 06, 2018

Nevada’s housing shortage is all over the news these days and much of it can be downright depressing if you’re in the market to buy almost anywhere in the state. But fear not, we (and our handy-dandy homebuyer programs) are here for you. Current market conditions make our family of Home Is Possible programs even more valuable to eager buyers than they were back when we created them in 2014.

If your family’s annual income is $98,500 or less, and the home you want to buy costs less than $400,000, Home Is Possible can help you with your down payment or closing costs. But wait! There’s more!

  • If you’re a veteran or active military personnel, you could secure a below-market fixed interest rate with the Home Is Possible for Heroes program.
  • If you’re a licensed K-12 teacher in Nevada, you could receive $7,500 through the Home Is Possible for Teachers program, as well as a below-market fixed interest rate 30-year loan.
  • And if you’re a first-time homebuyer or qualified veteran, you could save about $2,000 a year with the Home Is Possible Mortgage Credit Certificate program.

About now, you’re probably telling yourself this couldn't possibly be as good as it sounds. Well, don’t just take our word for it. Watch the videos below to hear directly from some folks who have used our programs.

Cesar and Emily disliked renting, mostly because of how difficult it was to find a place where their pets would be welcome. Though they were always planning to buy a home, they thought the process would be much more difficult than it actually was with Home Is Possible.

Native Nevadan Shanice had a plan: Go to college, get a degree, then buy a house. Our Home Is Possible program helped with number three on her list, easing the stress of coming up with a down payment. She now has her own home, painted the exact color she’s always wanted.

Scrolling through social media helped high school teacher Megan Lane find out about Home Is Possible For Teachers, which helped her buy her first home and, in her words, “be able to step out and become a real adult.”

Tommy and Sandra were ready to invest in a home of their own. A friendly lender let them know about Home Is Possible For Heroes, and a month later they were busy decorating their new home. As Tommy says, “This was the most painless homebuying experience in the history of homebuying experiences.” Tommy, we could not agree more.

It’s not just homebuyers who love Home Is Possible. Real estate agent Kim Ritter has used the program to help 20 families (15 veterans!) so far and says it’s the best thing for her clients since sliced bread and the polio vaccine! Perhaps we exaggerate, perhaps not. You be the judge.

Is homebuying going viral? Maybe. And you could catch it by watching our newest YouTube video!

If you’re ready to get started on the path to homeownership, call one of our HIP-qualified lenders to find out what you qualify for, and then start picking out paint swatches.
