We’re always looking for ways to show our appreciation for what our local heroes do for us. Police, firefighters, military, doctors, nurses, teachers and many other local heroes can now benefit from a program that shows them how much we care. Help For Heroes is designed to help our local heroes buy their new home, or refinance their existing home. It offers competitive interest rates, standard underwriting guidelines, and up to $20,000 to be used to cover closing costs. There is no repayment of the funds and no additional qualifying requirements. Help For Heroes can be used anywhere in California. There are no income limits, no area restrictions, and it is not just for first-time buyers. It can be used to purchase a primary residence, investment property, or second home. Help-For-Heroes can be used with FHA, VA, USDA, and Conventional financing. Learn more in this segment of Eye on the Community.
