IDA savings can put a home within reach

Do you want to own a home, but need money for the down payment and closing costs?

An Individual Development Account (IDA) can help.

By matching every dollar you save (up to $500) toward your home with an additional $8, New Hampshire IDA puts your dream of homeownership within reach.

You can use your IDA savings, plus the match money you earn, to buy or develop a single-family home, condominium, home in a co-op, or pre-fabricated home (including manufactured housing).

To qualify as a first-time homebuyer, you—and, if married, your spouse—cannot have had an ownership interest in a primary residence for at least three years prior to the day you buy your new home.

A homeownership IDA can help you:

  • More quickly save the money you need to buy a home
  • Reduce your mortgage loan by providing a down payment
  • Increase your home price range by adding to your available financing

Are you ready to invest in homeownership?
