Our Two Simple Criteria
Our program is most successful when the following two characteristics are met. We ask that you keep these in mind prior to applying for the program.
1. Intended for long-term home occupancy
We look for long-term clients to move in, maintain, and eventually own their new home. We do not view this as merely a rental program, and we strongly urge the same view if/when you move into your new home through our program.
2. Income at least 3X monthly rent
In order for the program to be effective, and for you to comfortably afford your home while still enjoying everything greater Des Moines has to offer, we strongly recommend that this prerequisite is met when considering our program. For example, if the rent is $1,200 per month, we should see a gross monthly income (e.g. before taxes), of at least $3,600 for your combined household.
