Did you know the city of Lake Forest has a housing program.... Two of the programs offered support both current homeowners as a way to spruce up their homes and second program allows some help to First Time Home Buyers. Click on the following links for details.
First Time Home Buyer Program - A tax credit offered to First Time Home Buyers, up to 15%.
Paint Program - This is a NO CHARGE program for those who may need assistance in sprucing up their home.
I like seeing the city keep home ownership as a priority. Now if we can get them to put some pressure and accountability on the Lenders to help Homeowners keep their homes or even hold lenders accountable to maintain homes that are currently in foreclosure, I would truly be happy. After all over 56% of Lake Forest homes are in distress and this hurts the community in several aspects.
