The program also offers low or no mortgage insurance options for lower monthly payments.

To be eligible for the Start Up program, applicants must be first-time homebuyers (those who have not owned a home in the past three years) and meet the program’s stated income limits. They must also purchase a home that falls within the program’s maximum purchase price limits; $340,000 for 11-County Metro, and $294,600 for the rest of the state.
