Special Foreclosure Downpayment Assistance Funds

October 12th, 2009 · No Comments

 Downpayment/Closing Cost Loans for Buyers of Foreclosed Properties 

Greater Minnesota Housing Funds will provide downpayment and closing cost assistance loans of $10,000 or $15,000 (depending on buyer’s income and availability of GMHF funds) to income qualified buyers purchasing foreclosed home in Greater Minnesota. Loans have 0% interest and no monthly payments are required! If the buyer remains in the home for 5 years, the entire loan amount is forgiven.

This program has two important goals: reducing the negative effects on foreclosures on comminutes and helping buyers become successful homeowners for the long term. To meet these goals, the program has the following requirements:


  • The property must be a foreclosure or short sale 
  • The property must be located in an incorporated city and have city sewer and water service 
  • Buyer must meet income guidelines 
  • Buyers must complete an eight-hour Home Stretch homebuyer education class (even if they have previously owned a home)  
  • Buyers must be able to qualify for a mortgage that meets GMHF program guidelines  
  • Buyers must obtain a professional inspection for the property they intend to purchase
