  • Low Down Payment – Put down a little as 5% when using HomeSteps Financing.

  • Experienced Lenders – HomeSteps Financing is offered through a select group of participating lenders who are very familiar with our HomeSteps homes and are skilled in helping buyers find the right financing to meet their needs.

*HomeSteps Financing may not be the right choice for all buyers. Please speak with a HomeSteps participating lender, or any other lender of your choice, to discuss all of your options and find the home loan that is right for you.
