California Housing Finance Agency
by: Michael Saunders
One of the better qualities of State Governments is their staggering ability to determine and address the primary needs of its people. One of these basic needs, of course, is the need for a safe and comfortable home that they can so willingly call their own without burning their pockets.
Fortunately, the State of California has recognized this need. And as a result, has established the California Housing Finance Agency in the year 1975. For over 35 years, the agency has been helping first time and non-first time homebuyers in the process of acquiring a new home for themselves.
The California Housing Finance Agency, otherwise known as CalHFA, is an independent, self-supporting agency that was chartered to as the State's affordable housing bank to make low interest rate loans through the sale of tax-exempt bonds; with these bonds being repaid by revenues generated through mortgage loans, instead of taxpayer dollars.
Eversince its creation, CalHFA has been California's leader in supporting the apparent needs of renters and first-time homebuyers through the provision of financing and programs that create safe, decent and affordable housing opportunities for low and moderate income individuals.
For over 35 years, CalHFA has already established several programs that are specially designed to achieve its goals and objectives. Some of its most notable programs are the following:
