Down Payment Assistance

Home Mortgage Loan Special Programs

There are several programs available for homes located anywhere in Ohio that provide funds for down payment and/or closing costs. This assistance comes in the form of grants which do not have to be repaid and/or second liens which must be paid in full when the home is sold or refinanced. The interest rates are fixed for 30 years. These programs have restrictions based on your family income, family size and the County you are purchasing in. Not all of the programs require that you be a first time homebuyer.

Ohio Housing Finance Agency

The Agency offers a variety of programs to help first-time homebuyers, renters, senior citizens and others find quality affordable housing that meets their needs. The Agency also works with developers and property managers of affordable housing throughout the state.

Testimonials

After dealing with a shady mortgage lender who cost us one home deal and almost cost us the one we ended up buying. I got in touch with Scott Voelkel and he managed to get the deal done in a unique situation. Thanks Scott, we will be sending everyone we know to you.

I am a real estate agent and I've been working with Scott Voelkel since 2002. We have made a very successful partnership with Scott as a lender to my clients. When I have needed Scott to expedite a loan because my clients have had specific needs, Scott has always delivered! Even when we have had challenges, Scott has risen to the occasion and helped in every capacity that I have ever needed. We have done some home buyer seminars together, and would welcome the opportunity to do more! Scott's ability to find creative financing and help with grant programs is second-to-none compared to other lenders with whom I have worked. I highly recommend this hard-working, top-notch professional, and I am not only honored to call him a colleague, but I am thankful to call him "friend".
