A VHDA loan offers opportunities for affordable housing to Virginians who under other circumstances might not be able to afford a quality residence. These programs are designed to assist creditworthy first-time homebuyers or those who have not owned and occupied a home anytime in the last three years and meet the sales price and income limits.
To meet VHDA eligibility requirements, loan applicants must:
- be a first-time homebuyer (no prior ownership in any residence during the previous three years—does not apply when purchasing property in areas of economic opportunity),
- intend to occupy the property,
- not use home in trade or business,
- limit lot size to two acres (waivers may be obtained up to five acres),
- demonstrate creditworthiness,
- demonstrate stable income and adequate funds for down payment and closing costs,
- meet program income and sales price limits, and
- complete VHDA's Homeownership Education class.
