The Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) is currently offering an incentive program to first-time and repeat buyers in Missouri, called the Home Ownership Purchase Enhancement (HOPE) Program.
MHDC has allocated $15 million toward the HOPE program. Qualified Missouri families that purchase a home in 2010 are eligible for a HOPE incentive equaling the amount of the 2009 real estate tax bill associated with the property they purchased, up to a maximum of $1,250. Additionally, homebuyers who are approved for the real estate property tax HOPE incentive may also be eligible to receive an additional amount if they bought a qualified newly constructed energy efficient home or bought an existing home and remodeled or purchased items, such as Energy Star appliances, to make the home more energy efficient. The maximum combined total of the HOPE property tax incentive and the HOPE energy efficiency incentive is $1,750.
This is a great opportunity for new homeowners to get a little extra cash in their pockets! For program details, and to see if you qualify, visit #mce_temp_url#
