One of the frequently asked questions we receive is, "Do I qualify?" The Teacher Next Door Program was designed to increase home ownership among teachers, support community development and increase access to affordable housing, free from discrimination. It was also designed to be much more inclusive and impose far fewer restrictions, than HUD's Good Neighbor Next Door Program. (Which only includes classroom teachers, police, fireman and EMT's.) Teacher Next Door currently has grants and down payment assistance available for ALL school employees. The above list is just an example of those who qualify. You may purchase ANY home on the market through Teacher Next Door, not just HUD homes.In order to see how much you qualify for, simply click apply now and complete the short pre-application. Your personal financial information is not collected on the pre-app and there is no credit check.Teacher Next Door is also the administrator of several other programs, including Nurse Next Door.

Sean, Thank you so much for working with all the teams and making my dream come true to buy my own home.

"The team was absolutely amazing. I have never worked with a team of professionals that was supportive as with The Teacher Next Door Program. I always felt respected and treated with dignity from the first phone call to the last walk through. I was educated along the way and I was given choices in my process. This is important because I didn't feel pressured to just sign something or just say yes to anything. Sheff always made himself available to me. I really felt like I had a team working with me, with my interests first instead of feeling rushed or pressured to sign papers just to close another deal. I will always recommend The Teacher Next Door Program to any teacher. HUGS AND SHOUT OUTS TO SHEFF, APRIL, KYRA & anyone who had a helping hand in my process. Thank you all,
"Brian and him team were excellent!"
"When I started the journey to buy a home, I did not have much faith that I would qualify for anything. I am a single mom, school teacher living on a budget, and didn't have any credit history. Samantha Wallace mentored me through the home buying process and gave me the confidence that I needed to keep moving forward in perusing my family's dream home. She advised me through every step necessary in order for me to qualify for an affordable option that met my needs. For an entire year she called me once a week and touched base; never rushing or giving up on me. Sometimes her phone calls were business oriented, sometimes she was offering advice, and sometimes she was just a friend offering me emotional support because the home buying process is stressful. I am so happy to announce that my family now owns our dream home. I feel like Samantha made it all happen. I will forever be grateful for her and all the things she has done for my family. Samantha Wallace is a dream maker!"

"Samantha was great to work with. She was fast & efficient, In this fast paced market that we are in right now, it’s very important for me to be able to get a quick response.
