NeighborWorks Rochester is here to be your partner from start to finish, an expert with your best interests at heart, working to make sure you have everything you need to make smart home buying decisions.
As a nonprofit, our mission is to help you find your best path to homeownership. A NeighborWork Rochester Compass Account is the tool you need to guide you home, and our homeownership advisors will be with you to answer questions along the way.
Our free Homebuyer Orientation – there are two sessions offered each month – will offer you the opportunity to get answers to your questions in person, and talk to multiple lenders who are knowledgeable about first-time homebuyer grants. It’s easy, just fill out the form on this page.
As a first-time homebuyer, you may qualify for down-payment and closing assistance grants such as the Homebuyer Dream Program (HDP.) This Federal Home Loan Bank program can provide grants starting at $7,500 for eligible participants. There are income limits, credit score and other eligibility requirements. We can help guide you through the process and answer your questions. Sign up for a free Homebuyer Orientation today!
