Our Mission

We focus on providing affordable mortgages to buyers whose income falls between 80- and 120-percent of an area’s median income.

In Wayne County, that calculates to

An income range (approximately) between $49,000 and $73,000, annually, for a family of two

An income range (approximately) between $61,000 and $91,000, annually, for a family of four

Additionally, OH requires that its homebuyers not currently (or within the last eight months) own a home and demonstrate the ability to earn or receive, regular income, including social security and retirement income.
