Down Payment loans of up to $25,000 are available to qualified home buyers in Woodbury.
The City of Woodbury, MN provides down payment assistance to make home ownership more affordable. Low-interest, deferred loans of up to $25,000 are available to buyers who have not owned a home in the past three years. Purchase prices must be $390,000 or less, and these funds can be used for single-family detached houses, town homes, or condos. Applicants must complete an approved home buyer education program. The first-time buyer requirement is waived for properties that are in foreclosure. This program has an income limit of $95,000.
The interest rate will be fixed at 3 percent simple annual interest, with monthly installment payments of interest only.
The City of Woodbury home buying program can help home buyers save some money in their budgets in five main ways:
- The principal on our $25,000 is deferred for 30 years or until transfer of title
- 3.00 percent interest rate is less than the 1st mortgage rate
- Our funds are viewed like equity and can help eliminate/reduce PMI
- No issuance fee
- Exempt from MRT
Woodbury’s First Time Home Ownership Program helps home buyers save money on the purchase of a home.
