It can be hard to come up with the money to buy your first home. We understand that.


The agency offers an array of special rates and loan programs for first-time homebuyers to make homeownership more affordable. The qualifying guidelines are different from other loans, too, with most requiring little or no down payment. Your Atlantic Union Bank Mortgage Loan Officer can help you figure out which option might work best for you. Additional resources from Virginia Housing can be found here
