Success takes many forms at CHFA!
We celebrate first-time homebuyers moving into their new homes and work with struggling homeowners who are receiving emergency help to stay in their homes. We finance new affordable housing, applaud at ribbon cuttings and celebrate when financing for renovations turns worn-out apartments into comfortable new homes.
Why did you pick CHFA for your mortgage?
I bank with Liberty Bank, and when I talked to them about a mortgage, they said CHFA would be the best option for me. I also did some research on my own.
Would you recommend CHFA?
I definitely would.. Actually, I have already -- I told my friends it was not as hard to buy a house as I thought it would be.
How did it go?
The process was smooth and I was able to find information to help on CHFA’s website. I took the online homebuyer education course too. The closing went well. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but after taking the homebuyer education class, I understood the terms.
Why did you buy a house?
Renting an apartment is OK, but I didn’t like that I couldn’t paint or do anything to make an apartment more my own. I knew I wanted to live somewhere that would be close to my job and my family, but I wanted something just for myself. I’m proud that it’s mine!
My mom, Patricia Moseley, is a realtor and she helped me find my house. It’s just been a couple of weeks, but I already feel like I’ve been here forever!
Davis Gardens, Waterbury, New Affordable Housing
The new Davis Gardens, in Waterbury, formerly known as Warner Gardens, was demolished and rebuilt between 2015 and 2017. The original complex was built in the 1950s and had become uninhabitable. With a new developer, Omni Development, the new property, with 122 units for families and individuals, has become a vibrant community. The apartment pictured at right is one of Davis Gardens' handicap-accessible units. CHFA awarded tax credits to the developers, leading to millions of dollars in private equity invested in the new development, along with funding from the Connecticut Department of Housing, and other private lenders.
