Many families in Boise want to pursue homeownership but face barriers of low income, poor/unestablished credit, or a lack of know-how.
The ‘Yes You Can’ Homebuyer Program connects clients with community providers of housing counseling, housing education, and financial assistance programs to ensure the home buying process is an empowering and affordable experience. Unlike other homeowner programs, clients benefit from attentive mentorship from a housing specialist-realtor team who champion them on from dream to doorstep. This free service provides culturally savvy staff and the only realtor in the valley who specializes in serving first time and low-income home buyers.
Established in October 2017, ‘Yes You Can’ currently has 18 families engaged in the homebuying process anywhere from making goals to closing on their first home.
