Well, it is official, and it is good news! Missouri Housing Development Commission (bond money) has increased the income limits for our area. The income limits are for the Springfield and surrounding areas. A household size of 1-2 people has an income limit of $60,700 for a property located in a non-targeted area. There are various qualifications that need to be met with this type of loan, but it is a great option for your first-time home-buyers who have limited funds available for a down payment. Feel free to give me a call if you would like more information!
