HOPE offers a variety of mortgage options for any potential buyer, including previous homeowners. Affordable loan packages are available through HOPE's lending partners for homebuyers who need financing for existing homes, new homes or manufactured homes.
HOPE is an affiliate of JustChoice Lending, which offers a special mortgage product exclusively for low-income homebuyers in Central Appalachia. 502 Direct Loans are funded by the federal government and mortgage payments are based on the household's adjusted income. Getting a 502 Direct Loan provides an opportunity to own your home and build equity for the future. Financing options are available for clients with fixed incomes, those who are self-employed and the working class. A 502 Direct Loan can offer:
► no down payment
► alternative credit analysis
► interest rates as low as 1%
► payment assistance
► affordable monthly payments
JustChoice Lending also offers 502 Guaranteed Loans to help moderate-income homebuyers purchase homes in rural areas.
JustChoice Lending is backed by the Federation of Appalachian Housing Enterprises (FAHE), a regional network of nonprofit housing providers that is a Certified Fair and Safe mortgage lender with more than 25 years of lending experience.
HOPE offers affordable, energy-efficient housing solutions through the planned development of new home communities. Custom-built or modular homes are available.
HOPE's Deerfield community is an innovative and environmentally friendly subdivision in Wytheville developed through a combination of federal, state and private funding. Phase I consisting of 18 lots is sold out. Phase II consisting of 12 lots is currently under development and has only a few lots remaining. Click here to see the plat of Phase II (pdf).
HOPE's newest planned community under development is Long Meadows in Fort Chiswell, consisting of 23 lots. Homes will be built to Energy Star certification requirements to provide 20%-30% in energy savings to homeowners. Click here to see the plat of Long Meadows (pdf).
Houses of HOPE
The Houses of HOPE program began in 2013 in response to the need to assist low-wealth, disadvantaged individuals with hard-to-develop homes. The program uses volunteer labor and materials to build or repair homes in a Habitat for Humanity-style project.
