Centre County Housing and Land Trust knows that it takes a community of dedicated people including real estate agents to ensure that first-time homebuyers understand affordability restrictions and are prepared to purchase and maintain their first home through our program.
As a real estate agent, you serve potential first-time homebuyers directly. Below are a few resources of how we can work better together.
1. Refer a potential CCHLT homebuyer. Online referral form is available. CCHLT offers a $1,000 finder’s fee for a real estate agent that provides a successful referral which results in a CCHLT home sold. View our current income guidelines and homebuyer process to become familiar with how CCHLT operates.
2. View a webinar on How to Advance Affordable Homeownership through REALTOR Partnerships provided by Cornerstone Partnership. View a longer description and featured speaker bios from the webinar here. The slides of the webinar are available as well. Are there other ways that we can work together? Share your suggestions today.
