Housing Academy

Down payment money is the biggest obstacle in making the transition from renter to homeowner.  Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or sophisticated real estate investor, managing your savings can be an exhausting task.  Many homebuyers are not aware of the opportunity to receive downpayment help.  Washington Housing Association has spent years researching some of the best options when it comes to downpayment assistance programs (DPA).  On this page we have compiled a list of some of the best DPA programs in Washington State.  However, some lending institutions may not offer, or participate in, DPA programs.  It is important for you to educate yourself on all of the financing options available to you.  Read more about these programs below, or contact us if you have any further questions.
