Next Steps If You Don't Qualify


If you have not completed the required steps for an appointment, NKCDC can help you work toward homeownership.

1. Get pre-approved for a mortgage by an approved participating lender.

2. Find a house you want to buy and get a signed purchase and sale agreement to purchase that house. You must be in contract and have a signed purchase and sale agreement in hand to apply for NeighborhoodLIFT funds.

3. Take homebuyer education online through NKCDC's e-Home America platform.
Successful completion of the eight-hour HBE course is required prior to closing.
(Note: If you successfully completed homebuyer education through an approved agency prior to April 1, 2016, your certificate will be accepted.)

4. Explore other homebuyer programs available in Philadelphia. NKCDC can provide information on programs eligible for layering incentives together with NeighborhoodLIFT funding.
