Chandler helps with home buying, foreclosure


First-time Chandler homebuyers can take advantage of a program that offers homes at reduced prices by attending a one-hour informational workshop at 6:30 p.m. Tue., July 5 or Tue., Aug. 2 at Chandler’s Senior Center at 202 E. Boston St. in Chandler.


Under the program, the purchase of a home is reduced because buyers only have to afford the cost of the structure, not the land, which will be held in a trust managed by Newtown Community Development Corporation, now working out of a downtown Chandler office provided by the City of Chandler. Homes can be purchased anywhere in Chandler, and Newton will arrange financing and offer down-payment assistance, credit repair, homebuyer education and ongoing support after the purchase. To qualify, buyers cannot have owned a home in the last three years, and a family of four cannot make more than $80,000. In addition, area residents facing foreclosure or trying to buy their first homes can utilize the help of counselors from Newtown, which are available 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays at the offices of the City of Chandler’s Neighborhood Resources Division, located at 235 S. Arizona Ave. in downtown Chandler. Counselors can help resolve credit issues, provide information about down payment assistance, loan modifications and other resources, including Newtown’s matching funds program, as well as help families with credit scores as low as 620 qualify for home loans.


Newtown Community Development Corporation is a nonprofit organization promoting affordable housing and innovative home-buying programs. To make an appointment, call 480-517-1589.
