Delaware REALTORS® Help Inform First-Time Buyers

By HOM Editor

The Delaware Association of REALTORS® has teamed up with the Delaware State Housing Authority to inform first-time home buyers about the programs available to help them.

First-time home buyers in Delaware have various down-payment assistance and closing cost assistance programs to chose from. However, few know about these programs.

REALTORS® have taken on the mission of driving awareness among the public and strengthening communities through outreach.

Delaware REALTORS® are connecting with recent college graduates to let them know that buying might be a better alternative to renting. They also are providing rent-to-own program guidelines.

In addition, local REALTORS® are presenting home buyer education programs and helping buyers navigate the real estate market in Delaware: While many first-time buyers may not be able to afford a house in pricey coastal areas such as Lewes and Rehoboth Beach, they might well qualify for a house 20 miles inland.

Through these avenues, Delaware REALTORS® are working hard to make sure first-time buyers are not discouraged—and that they can find a place of their own to call home.
