Realtors & Lenders
Realtors seeking to help residents purchase affordable homes in Bay County are encouraged to connect current and future clients to ReHouse Bay home buying assistance. The First-Time Home Buyer program helps with down payment and closing costs. See below to learn how you can support recovery efforts by assisting residents in purchasing homes in Bay County.
Housing Assistance Survey
To help your prospective homebuyer determine if they meet basic criteria for the program, first direct them to this short Housing Assistance Survey. The Housing Assistance Survey helps prospective homebuyers evaluate whether the Home Purchasing Support Program is right for them (based on household income and other factors) and if it is worth their time to apply.
Next, interested homebuyers will complete the housing support application online. Once the application is completed, they will be contacted by a ReHouse Bay intake specialist to schedule an appointment for next steps and discuss what other documentation is needed to move forward in the process.
First-Time Homebuyer Training
All homebuyers who receive assistance will need to complete first-time homebuyer training. In-person classes run about six to eight hours and are typically held on the third Wednesday of every month. This opportunity is also open to individuals who may not be quite ready for homeownership but want to prepare for the future.

If you have any questions or concerns about the program, please do not hesitate to reach out via email: ReHouseBay@pcgov.org.
