Shared Equity

When available, The Housing Fund provides downpayment assistance to homebuyers through Our House Shared Equity Program. The program provides a loan investment of up to 25% of the sales price to income-eligible buyers. The loan investment stays with the home, upon resale. As a trade-off for increased affordability, if  a homebuyer chooses to sell, a percentage of the home’s appreciated value is retained by THF to keep the home affordable for the next owner. The next buyer must meet THF income guidelines. This buyer will receive the Our House loan.
