Buy in Nye Homeownership Program

Lender & Realtor New Program Resources

The Buy in Nye Program opens the door to:
• Two forgivable Down Payment Assistance (DPA) options with 30-year fixed-rate mortgages offered exclusively in Nye County:
Option 1) $16,000 DPA
Option 2) $5,000 DPA
• Visit for options and rates

Pair it with the MCC for the following benefits:
• The Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) helps first-time buyers and qualified veterans obtain mortgage tax credits for the life of the loan
• MCC increases qualifying income and lowers debt-to-income ratios which help more homebuyers get approved for a home mortgage. For example, a $345,000 mortgage at 6.50% interest generates an estimated $371 in additional monthly income*.
