UB H.O.M.E. is a purchase assistance program that offers full-time faculty and staff up to $7,500 towards down payment and closing costs, or the buy-down of a point of interest on the primary mortgage, for the purchase of a home near the University’s South Campus. The goal is to encourage faculty and staff to pursue homeownership within close proximity to the University, in an effort to help support, stabilize and revitalize campus neighborhoods.
The UB H.O.M.E. financial assistance will be in the form of a combination deferred and forgivable loan that requires no monthly payments. Provided that the buyer remains owner-occupant of the assisted property for a period of 5 continuous years, a portion of the funding is forgiven. The balance of the funding is due only after you sell or transfer title to the property.
