Investors Want to Help You Become a Homeowner

A buying program called "homeownership investors" can help buyers purchase a larger home than they could otherwise afford or, in some cases, help a buyer qualify for a home he or she could not afford otherwise.

On the front end, the process simply gives homebuyers money towards a downpayment – money that doesn't have to be paid back either through monthly payments or even interest as long as the buyer lives in the home. The extra money can help a buyer upgrade to a bigger property or pay less per month on the mortgage since the total loan amount will be less.
