- City of Buffalo Launches Home Grown Homeownership Program
The City of Buffalo is now offering a great first-time homebuyer opportunity for eligible purchasers to buy and rehabilitate a home from the Division of Real Estate’s inventory. Heart of the City Neighborhoods, Inc. (HOCN) is currently assisting homebuyers with processing applications for the City of Buffalo’s Home Grown Homeownership (HGH) Program.
Eligible low-income, first time homebuyers may be eligible to purchase a vacant home from the City of Buffalo Division of Real Estate and receive funding to make needed repairs to make the home code compliant and ready for move in.
Assistance is only available for income eligible first-time homebuyers who are using a SONYMA Remodel NY Mortgage and looking to purchase a single or double family home from eligible properties at the City of Buffalo Division of Real Estate. Eligible homes for sale are not move-in ready, so the ideal buyer will enjoy working with a fixer-upper.
More information on this exciting program can be found on our HGH Program Page.
