Buyer Resources: Arlington’s Moderate Income Purchase Assistance Program (MIPAP)

arlington logo

If you are looking in Arlington and haven’t yet saved up the money for a down payment or closing costs, Arlington County has a program that may help. Arlington’s MIPAP program offers a deferred 0% interest rate loan to first-time homebuyers to help cover a down payment or closing costs of up to 25% of the purchase price. You make no monthly payments on the subordinate loan from the County until you sell or refinance. The County does get a shared interest in any potential appreciation of the property down the road when you go to sell or refinance. At the sale, you split any appreciation, up to 25% (determined by an appraisal), proportionally with the county in addition to paying off the original loan. If the property hasn’t appreciated, you simply repay the original loan, interest free.

Requirements:

  • Moderate income, currently limited to $62,100 for 1 person or $69,920 for a household of 2
  • Property must be located in Arlington County
  • Buyer must contribute at least 1% as a down payment
  • Maximum purchase price is $362,790, maximum loan amount is $90,700.

If you are interested in learning more about this or other programs available to homebuyers, please do reach out. We are happy to help you understand your options and find the right place for you.

Buyer Resources: Down Payment Assistance from DC Open Doors

DC Open Doors logo

Do you have the income and credit to buy a home, but haven’t saved the cash for a down payment yet? DC Open Doors may be the answer. The program provides fully-forgivable loans for minimum (3-5%) down payments and access to below-market interest rate loans. This equates to essentially 100% financing. There are a few requirements listed below, but this program has already helped over 500 buyers in the first 3 years of operating the program.

Program Qualification Highlights

  • Can have an income of up to $125,580
  • Good Credit >640
  • Not required to be a first time homebuyer

 

Best of all, the down payment loan is offered at 0% interest and is forgiven at 20% a year for 5 years.  As long as the buyer makes payments on time and continues to occupy the property as their primary residence, the down payment loan is completely forgiven after 5 years! If a buyer decides to sell before the 5 years are up, they just pay off the remainder of the 0% interest loan along with the underlying mortgage. This great program is designed to help DC residents afford to stay in the city when they are ready to buy. If you are interested in learning more about this or other resources available to buyers, please contact us. We are always happy to walk you through your options.
