colorado first time home buyer programs

Wyatt Home Loans is a CHFA (Colorado Housing and Finance Authority) approved lender, helping Colorado first time home buyers achieve their home ownership goals. Becoming a first time home buyer in Colorado is an exciting step, which may seem overwhelming at first. Our team of Castle Rock, Colorado mortgage loan officers can help you navigate through the grants and DPA (down payment assistance programs) available in 2022 and beyond. 

First time home buyers in Colorado may qualify for conventional loans with 20% down, but when home prices average $719,381 (via Colorado Association of REALTORS- March 2022) many first time borrowers might fall short of these down payment requirements. CHFA loan programs can often help these buyers with grants that can be used for down payments, with NO payback required!

CHFA First Time Home Buyer Grants

As a top CHFA approved lender, we are able to assist first time home buyers with grants up to 3 percent of their first mortgage. For example, first time buyers may qualify for a $12,000 grant on a $400K home. The best part is… these grants DO NOT need to be paid back! In addition, CHFA offers DPA second mortgage loans up to 4% of your first mortgage loan amount.
