Empower is a loan program to help low to moderate-income first-time homebuyers with up to 17% of the purchase price of a single-family home, condo, or townhome in Santa Clara County. The maximum loan amount is $187,000 on a home that is up to $1,100,000. With only a 3% down payment required from the buyer, a 20% down payment on the home is possible. As a 30-year deferred loan, no monthly loan payments are required.
For example, with a household of four people, if your combined income is $202,200 or less, you may be eligible.
If you want to buy a home just for yourself and make $141,550 or less, you could also qualify. Homebuyers must live or work in Santa Clara County. For more information about Income Limits, Program Requirements, and How to Pre-Qualify, please visit housingtrustsv.org/empower
