Homeownership Opportunity Minneapolis

Own Your Future Own Your Home!

Maybe you’ve thought homeownership wasn’t possible, or you didn’t know where to start. Maybe you thought your credit wasn’t good enough or you haven’t saved enough for a down payment. We can help!

The City of Minneapolis is partnering with Minnesota Housing and the Minnesota Homeownership Center to provide access to down payment assistance, quality, affordable mortgages and free, non-biased housing experts that can help you become a successful home owner!

Quality, Affordable Mortgages and Down Payment Assistance

Minnesota Housing, the State’s Housing Finance Agency, offers mortgage loans for first-time homebuyers with affordable interest rates.

Free Homeownership Advisors

Talking one-on-one with a FREE non-biased, non-profit housing expert can provide that extra boost of confidence you need to become a successful homebuyer. We’ll connect you with a Homeownership Advisor and specialized workshops for first-time buyers to make sure that YOUR questions get answered... and you have the tools and knowledge necessary to own your future!

Homebuyer Education

If you are a first time home buyer, the City of Minneapolis requires all first time homebuyers (for this program or any of the City of Minneapolis’ assistance programs) to attend home buyer education. Low cost home buying workshops are available from Home Stretch or Framework in multiple languages. Counselors will work with home buyers to determine affordability, credit issues, and make lender referrals. More information

Financial Counseling

If you do not qualify for a mortgage loan and would like assistance to build or repair credit, manage debt and build a strong financial plan, contact financial counselors through Minnesota Housing or the Minnesota Homeownership Center
