The Mortgage Revenue Bond Program is commonly known as the First Time Homebuyer Program. This program provides a mortgage loan that has a below-market interest rate to make homeownership more affordable for families and individuals.

- borrower(s) gross income must not exceed a county income limit,*
- the house to be purchased must not exceed a house price limit,*
- the borrower cannot have owned a home within the prior three years in 20 counties.
The Bond program is a 25- to 30-year, fixed rate mortgage loan. Up to 100% of the purchase price of the home can be financed.
Eligible properties must be located in the state of West Virginia, to be used as the primary residence of the applicant(s).
Eligible properties include single, detached, existing, stick-built or modular homes; duplex, townhouse, or condominium units, and new double-wide mobile/manufactured homes. (New or used single- and used double-wides are not eligible.) Property conveyed with the home transaction cannot exceed five acres.
