Well it looks like the National Homebuyers Fund Platinum will be suspended as of February 29, 2016. The lender backing this grant program will no longer be accepting new loans.
If you are preapproved to buy a home and are planning on using the NHF Grant program, you may want to contact your mortgage professional to come up with another plan.
Home buyers who need down payment assistance may also consider the programs offered by the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, such as Home Advantage. Although the down payment assistance programs offered by WSHFC are not grants, they are loans (typically with payments deferred) that will eventually need to be repaid. Here is more information on the various down payment assistance programs I have available.
If you are considering buying a home located anywhere in Washington State, I’m happy to help you!
