Vacants to Value Booster
The Vacants to Value Booster program is for properties that were subject to a vacant building notice for at least one year prior to (a) rehabilitation of the property by a developer, or (b) sale of the property to a homebuyer who intends to renovate the property using a rehabilitation loan.
This program reduces the amount of money you’ll need up-front to buy your home.
