OHFA, the Ohio Financing Agency’s First Time Home Buyer Program, continues to support some of the greater Cincinnati housing sales.
Many moons ago I provided information about the program. Many buyers in greater Cincinnati don’t realize OHFA has money targeted for areas in all 4 counties. If you need more details about specific cities, villages or areas you can review this handout.
Some other interesting facts:
- The “First -Time Homebuyer Program” does not exclude everybody who previously owned a home.
- Down payment assistance is available
- Military, Healthcare Workers, Firefighters, EMT’s or Paramedics. Police Officers and Teachers can obtain a lower interest rate through the program
- Eligible for 203k loan
Qualified buyers using OHFA continue to have a unique tool to use if they are really interested in buying real estate in greater Cincinnati.

If you need the names of lenders or help finding a property to help is only a phone call away!
