Next Steps

If you have not completed the required steps for an appointment, Origin SC can help you work toward homeownership.

NOTE: Completing the required steps does not guarantee an appointment. Appointments will be open only if NeighborhoodLIFT funds are available. 

  1. Get pre-approved for a mortgage by an approved participating lender.
  2. Find a house you want to buy and get a signed purchase and sale agreement to purchase that house.  You must be in contract and have a signed purchase and sale agreement in hand to apply for NeighborhoodLIFT funds.

  3. Register for a homebuyer education course with Origin SC. Successful completion of the eight-hour HBE course is required prior to closing.

  4. Explore other homebuyer programs in your area that offer down payment assistance.
