The City hosted a Homeownership Information Fair on Saturday, July 15 at Carolina Pines Community Center. This event highlighted City and non-profit partner programs related to homeownership.
If you missed the event, or want a refresher on resources available to prospective or current homeowners, we've got you covered!
The City offers forgivable loans of up to $60,000 to help offset the cost of a down payment, closing costs, or other expenses related to purchasing your first home. The program has income restrictions, a maximum home sale price, and other qualification requirements. Find out if you qualify and get started today!
The homebuying process can be costly and challenging to navigate. CESI and DHIC offered mini Homebuyer Workshops to provide an overview for first-time buyers.
