Want To Buy A Foreclosed Home? Get A $15k Grant!

Last updated on Thursday, April 9, 2009

(STATEHOUSE) - The state is offering free money to entice people to buy homes out of foreclosure in the state’s hardest hit areas.

Indiana is using $33 million in federal grants to offer Hoosiers $15,000 toward a down payment on buying a foreclosed home or to rehab the property, as long as they're within 20% of the county's median income.

If you're 20% below, you qualify for another $10,000 from federal home loan bank. The only catch: you have to live in the house for 10 years.

If you flip it or refinance it before then, you have to pay the money back.
