Oklahoma Down Payment Assistance
Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency offers 3.5% down payment assistance on a home in all 77 counties in the state of Oklahoma through a program called OHFA Advantage.
How do I qualify?
Homebuyers must have a minimum credit score of 620 (increasing to 640 Aug. 1, 2012) and purchase a home in the state of Oklahoma that is priced at less than $189,607 (increasing to $215,000 Aug. 1, 2012). You must also meet certain income guidelines that vary depending on the county where you are purchasing a home and use a mortgage lender that participates in OHFA Advantage. Click here for income limits.
What type of home can I buy?
Loans can be used to purchase new or existing single-family homes, condos and multi-section mobile homes.
Do I have to be a first time homebuyer to use the program?
No. You are considered a first time homebuyer if you have not owned a home in the last three years. If you are not a first time homebuyer you must purchase a home in a “target” area. The income limit is also higher in “target” areas to encourage more people to purchase in those areas. Target and non-target areas can be viewed when viewing income limits by county.
What type of home loans are offered?
All of the loans are low-interest 30-year fixed rate loans. A fixed rate loan means your monthly mortgage payment will never go up. The current interest rate is 4.00% for Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Veterans Affairs (VA) and U.S. Department of Agriculture-Rural Development (USDA-RD) loan products.
How does this program help me with affordable, responsible homeownership?
Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency has a foreclosure of less than one percent. Everyone who uses the program must use an approved mortgage lender and meet a minimum credit score.
How do I get started and find out if I qualify?
Contact a participating lender. Click here for a list of participating lenders. You can also call the Oklahoma Homebuyer Hotline at 1-888-937-1122.
Does my spouse have to have a credit score of at least 620?
Any purchaser of a home who signs the real estate contract must have a credit score of at least 620 (increasing to 640 Aug 1, 2012).
What happens if I sell the home I bought using down payment assistance?
If you sell or refinance the home before five years are up, you will be required to pay a prorated share of the down payment assistance back to Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency.
