Free Home Buying Seminar in Leesburg, VA

Free Home Buying Seminar in Loudoun County.

Have you considered buying a home but just thought you didn’t make enough money?  Do you think you need a large downpayment to own a home?  Are you considering making a move but just don’t know where you want to go?  If so, you should attend Loudoun County Living’s home buying seminar on May 9th to find out how you could own a home of your own within just a few months.

Loudoun County offers 3 unique home buying programs.

  1. The Public Employee Homeownership Grant Program (PEG) offers grants (as part of a secured loan) to help cover down payments for full or part-time county employees, teaches, law enforcement and firefighters. Loans are forgivable at 20% of the loan amount annually over a five-year period providing the employee does not leave employment, sell the home, or no longer occupies the residence.   Grant amounts include $5,000 for the purchase of a home located within Loudoun County; $15,000 for the purchase of a foreclosed property (no short sales); or $25,000 for the purchase of a property in Loudoun County’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP).
  2. The Affordable Dwelling Unit (ADU) Program helps households whose income falls below the county’s medium income levels, to buy a new construction home or resale properties – prices typically range from approximately $120,000 to $180,000 for condos or townhomes in the program.
  3. The Down Payment Closing Cost Assistance Program helps both PEG program participants and ADU buyers pay for their closing costs and down payment on a home.  First-time homebuyers purchasing a home either through the Affordable Dwelling Unit program or purchasing an existing market rate home can borrow up to 10% of the sales price or $25,000, whichever is less, at 5% interest. This loan is in the form of a second trust, payable over a 30 year period with the first three years of payments deferred and interest free.

If you think you fall into one of these categories, or if you’re just investigating your home-buying options, attend this free seminar:

The property is located at 110 Catoctin Circle NE and consists of three parcels, the largest of which is approximately 8 acres.

Lansdowne Development plans to create a Limited Liability Corporation to handle the development and should have plans submitted to Loudoun County within 30 days.

Approval Still Needed

The Town of Leesburg has made the assistant town manager, Scott Parker the point of contact for the development and hopes to expedite the development. The plan will have to receive administrative approval from planning staff and undergo re-zoning and concept plan that will require approval from the Leesburg Planning Commission and the Town Council. The site does have some environmental issues with the proximity of the Town Branch flood plain located on its west, and the presence of bed rock. Lansdowne Development expects that by reducing the residential density they will be able to avoid most of the environmental issues. The town of Leesburg believes the development will provide a boost for the downtown provide much needed connection between Catoctin Circle and Harrison Street.
