Offer Accepted (within 48 hours of offer)
When you submit an offer it can either be accepted, rejected, or counter offered. Once you have an accepted offer, income eligible buyers can apply for financial assistance for their down payment or closing costs. These programs are offered by specific towns or regions and therefore the eligibility criteria and funding available varies from town to town. See below for information on specific towns’ programs.
You may also be able to access assistance for down payment and/or closing costs through your lender. Certain lenders in Massachusetts are members of the Equity Builder program, which gives them access to federal funds to give to qualified borrowers.
