Your household size counts every individual who either lives or will live in your home, regardless of whether they will be on the mortgage.

  • Have more than the required minimum income: Due to the high cost of homes in Seattle, the minimum income we can typically serve is $30,000 per year and up, unless you have a significant downpayment (e.g.$20,000 or more). Call us!
  • Be able to Contribute at least 1% of the Home Purchase Price or $2,500 (whichever is greater) to the down payment. You must also spend all but $5,000 of your liquid assets (checking and savings), if you have that much, on the home purchase. For example: homebuyers with $10,000 in their checking account will be required to make a $5,000 downpayment.
