One local Bank is offering up to $3000 in grant money on some Milwaukee homes based on location. Grants are available only to owner occupants and of course other conditions apply. Down payments as low as 3% on some loans. Contact me for more information to see if you qualify and if we can find you a home that qualifies.

My listing at 7701 W Mill Rd in Milwaukee qualifies for up to a $3000 grant to home buyers meeting lender criteria.

For a limited time, if eligible, you may receive $15,000 for down payment assistance for the purchase of a primary, owner-occupied residence in the city of Milwaukee. The assistance is fully forgivable after you live in the home as your primary residence for five years. Contact me for more details. There are only a limited amount of loans so don't wait.

Following is a list of sources for grant money for home buyers.  Many of these programs are for first time home buyers but it doesn't hurt to check to see if you qualify for grant money on the purchase of a home.  These firms also provide important educational material for home buyers.  Make sure you mention my name when contacting them.

City of Milwaukee Programs

The Targeted Investment Neighborhood (TIN) initiative is designed to sustain and increase owner-occupancy, provide high quality affordable rental housing, strengthen property values, and improve the physical appearance and quality of life of neighborhoods. TINs focus resources for three years on a small area, generally six to twelve city blocks.
The Home Rehabilitation Loan Program offers forgivable and low-interest rehab loans to income-qualified owner-occupants in a TIN. Interest rates and terms are tied to income and family size. Deferred payment loans are available to elderly and disabled homeowners.


Funds for Handyman-Specials
and Fixer-Uppers

The purchase of a house that needs repair is often a catch-22 situation, because the bank won't lend the money to buy the house until the repairs are complete, and the repairs can't be done until the house has been purchased.

HUD's 203(k) program can help you with this quagmire and allow you to purchase or refinance a property plus include in the loan the cost of making the repairs and improvements. The FHA insured 203(k) loan is provided through approved mortgage lenders nationwide. It is available to persons wanting to occupy the home.
