$60,000 grant helps 261 Idaho families become homeowners

September 28, 2010 - (RealEstateRama) -- The federal homebuyer tax credit made homeownership more affordable for families across the country, but an important local partnership benefited Idaho homebuyers even further. IdaMortgage and the Home Partnership Foundation, brought to you by Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA), partnered with the Ada County Association of REALTORS® (ACAR) to make homeownership even more attainable to Idaho homebuyers through a program called Welcome Home Idaho. More than 1,300 homebuyers utilized IdaMortgage’s Tax Credit 2nd Loan, which helped borrowers monetize up to $7,000 of the federal homebuyer tax credit up front for use on down payment or closing costs.
