The cities of Santa Cruz, Watsonville and Scotts Valley have downpayment assistance programs for home buyers. Each of these cities have different terms for the amount they loan, contact me for details at 831.419.9345.
My personal favorite is the County of Santa Cruz Downpayment Assistance Program. For properties located in the County of Santa Cruz and outside the cities of Capitola, Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, Watsonville, a home buyer can receive up to $150,000 to help them buy a home. The interest is 3% simple interest and you can defer payment on it for the life of the loan. There are no restrictions when you go to sell the property so you can realize equity when you sell. See my post Success in using Santa Cruz first time buyer programs for an example of how this worked for my clients.
Santa Cruz Housing Foundation: This foundation provides grants for closing costs and HOA dues for first time home buyers in Santa Cruz.
