Special Homebuyer Program
Certain areas of the state are designated as Areas of Economic Opportunity, also known as Federal Targeted Areas. To help stimulate growth within these areas, VHDA is permitted to relax certain loan program requirements. We may:
- Raise the maximum allowable income and sales price limits.
- Waive the first-time homebuyer restriction.*
You’ll also enjoy the other benefits of a VHDA home loan, including affordable rates, free homebuyer education and the assurance of knowing your loan will continue to be serviced by VHDA, right here in Virginia.
