If you’re a first time home buyer in Washington you can use a Washington State Bond program like the Home Advantage or House Key Opportunity programs through the Washington State Housing and Finance Commission in order to get down payment assistance for your purchase. This is a great way to get started on your first property. If you combine one of these programs with the Energy Spark program you can save up to 0.25% on your interest rate for buying a green home or making the home you buy more energy efficient. To qualify for these programs, you must: Attend a First Time Home Buyer Education Seminar, Be under the income limit of $145,000, Have a credit score above 620, These seminars are free to attend, and the certification is good for 2 years. We partner with Caliber to teach these classes and get you ready to buy your first house as an investment.
