The Greater Atlantic City Chamber joined with the Chelsea EDC and three other neighborhood EDCs (Ducktown, Midtown and Inlet) Wednesday, March 10, 2021 for a free Zoom webinar that introduced attendees to the homebuying process, making them aware of all the programs and financial incentives available to those who buy homes in Atlantic City.
Representatives from Atlantic City, the Atlantic County Improvement Authority, the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, and private banks such as Fulton and PNC presented their incentive programs. You can watch the 70-minute video here.
The first step for anyone considering buying a home is to get pre-qualified by a lender. There are lenders that are familiar with and administer the incentive programs.
