The Washington State Housing Finance Commission has a lot of opportunities for first time and low income home buyers to help them get into homes. This kind of help can be especially helpful when trying to buy in the tough market in and around Seattle. For purposes of many of these programs, looking in these areas, low income means under $96,000 for the household.
To qualify for the programs, buyers have to take a five hour buyer education seminar. I’m one of their certified instructors for these seminars, and I’ll be co-teaching one with Joshua Horner of Caliber Home Loans at their East Lake location. The event will be from 11-5 and RSVP is required. Contact me if you’d like to attend – seating is limited, but I’ll start a waiting list if we fill up.
