CAR and SRAR continue dedicated efforts towards affordable housing.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (May 17, 2019)- This past April, Bobby Karami of Rodeo Realty Calabasas helped his most recent buyers secure their dream home. How was this accomplished you might ask?

Through the CAR and SRAR Grant Fund. Karami applied for the grant on behalf of his buyers and both in turn received a check for $2,000 towards their HOA dues.

He went on to share with us that additional details of the overall process. Stating “They offered this grant for my buyers who bought after February and worked with a realtor”.

In the Golden State, the primary sources of home funding include downpayment loans and grants, mortgage credit certificates, sleeping seconds and bond-rate financing, In addition, many local, state and national housing assistance agencies offer programs to help first-time and low-income homebuyers obtain affordable housing.

Federal and state governments, local communities, and non-profit organizations offer homeownership assistance in the form of grants or gifts. These gifts don’t have to be repaid as long as borrowers meet the individual program’s requirements.

Southland Regional Association of Realtors®, in partnership with the California Association of Realtors® Housing Affordability Fund, is providing grants to qualified first-time home buyers up to six month of HOA dues, not to exceed $2000. Applicants must meet certain requirements, including income limitations

In addition to these grants on November, 2002, CALIFORNIA REALTORS® unveiled the Housing Affordability Fund, a non-profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to addressing California’s growing housing affordability crisis. In the midst of skyrocketing housing costs, REALTORS® were bearing witness to more working families getting pushed away from the American dream of homeownership. The Housing Affordability Fund was established to provide more options for first time homebuyers’ entry into homeownership.

With numerous resources for first time homebuyers, finding your dream home is even more seamless with dedicated agents like Bobby Karami.
