Steps to Obtain a First Time Homebuyer Loan
Prequalify for a Loan
Participating Lending Institutions process all NHD loans. First, select a Participating Lending Institution. Then, make an appointment with that lender to determine your eligibility and the purchase price of the home for which you can qualify for and which loan type best meets your need.
The Participating Lending Institution will also explain what fees are involved and how much down payment is necessary.
First Time Homebuyer Education Class
The Division cannot emphasize how important homebuyer education is for first-time homebuyers. It is required by the Division for ALL of our Down Payment Programs. The Division requires the attendance to an in-person class and recommend homebuyers look for a class 6-8 hours in length.
Locate an Affordable Residence
Begin looking for an eligible residence you can afford based on the information the lender provided. Although not required, using the services of a real estate professional is recommended.
Enter Into a Real Estate Purchase Contract
This agreement is the contract used to purchase a home. It specifies the legal obligations of the seller and the buyer, established a specific date of purchase and set the price of the home. This contract should allow enough time for a complete home inspection, (on an existing home), home appraisal and loan approval. In this agreement, it should state that if you are not satisfied with the home inspection, or you do not obtain a NHD loan, the contract is cancelled and your earnest money will be refunded.
Apply for a Loan
At this point you can formally apply for a NHD loan through a Participating Lending Institution. After you have applied the lender will request that NHD reserve funds for the loan. Only one application may be made per applicant and funds are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis.
