Home Down Payment Assistance Program

Handy Hints by Nino Monaco

Down Payment Assistance: This program is available to income qualified first-time homebuyers for the purchase of a home. Maximum assistance available cannot exceed $10,000.

Assistance is provided in the form of a deferred or forgiven loan and need not be repaid until resale or transfer of the property.  Buyer must participate in an in-person pre-purchase counseling from a FHA-approved counseling agency and attend home maintenance training approved by the county.

Eligible home requirements: single-family, owner-occupied only, existing house or new construction, property must be occupied by the seller or be vacant for at least 90 days before closing.

Property must be inspected by the city for code violations and by County staff for defective paint and corrected before the buyer can take title or occupy the house.

Contact: Neighborhood Housing Services of Greater Cleveland at 216-458-4663.

Solon is apparently not an eligible community for this program. http://www.nhscleveland.org/programs/DPAHomeProgram.htm

I truly feel that this should be extended to non first time buyers as well.

It’s finally Friday, and we are ending the week with a little Louis Vuitton fun with photos! Photographer Vincent Bousserez had an idea similar to the movie Night at the Museum, but in this case, the Louis Vuitton Champs-Elysees store comes to life at night, and tiny figures take care and engage with beloved items. The photos are whimsical and magical and bring back childhood feelings of tiny little people taking care of our world when we are asleep. While some of the miniatures are hard at work keeping Louis Vuitton items clean, others are playing golf amidst Monogram canvas. I don’t know which is my favorite <b><a href="http://www.designerhandbagsoutletusa.net">Designer Handbags</a></b>, because they all give me such a feeling of joy.
