The DCHFA “DC Open Doors” Program
Want to buy a home or condo for $0 Down in DC? We offer twice-weekly Free Homebuyer Workshops about ‘DC Open Doors’ and other financing programs and are also available one-on-one for private help. Email us for the next Workshop Dates!
Launched in June 2013, the DC Housing Finance Agency’s “DC Open Doors” program is designed to make home ownership more affordable for those wishing to own a home or condo in downtown Washington, D.C. It is an intensive program that pays your down payment when you purchase, provided you meet certain qualifications and can live in the home at least for the first 5 years of ownership.
This program and funding is available to both first time home buyers and repeat home buyers. “First time home buyer’ means you have not owned your primary residence for the last 3 years. If you currently own your primary residence, you can still apply for $0 Down. Your current home must be sold and settled prior to closing on your $0 Down home.
Don’t be afraid to ask even the simplest questions. Visit our help pages and you can make contact. We’re here to help!
