Get Started with ACTS

ACTS supports families who are attempting to purchase a home with cash or a loan. We provide one-on-one, HUD-approved home buyer counseling for individuals interested in purchasing a home for owner-occupancy. As a real estate brokerage, ACTS represents families in the purchase of homes for owner occupancy, primarily in central city neighborhoods. ACTS then helps families plan and execute home rehabilitation, with a focus on reclaiming vandalized foreclosures. Our affiliated non-profit partner, ACTS Lending, Inc., provides mortgage loans for rehabilitation projects. ACTS provides all these services through four offices in three focus neighborhoods.

If you would like to buy a home, please attend one of the orientation sessions outlined in the flyer below.

ACTS can represent families and individuals in real estate sales transactions. As licensed Realtors, ACTS identifies and promotes Hot Properties with ridiculously low prices, develops comprehensive lists of homes meeting each family's housing needs and affordability, coordinates and attends home showings, assesses the general condition of homes, writes offers to purchase, develops buying strategies, assists with negotiations of sales contracts, and coordinates all aspects of the journey from an executed sales contract to the final closing and beyond.

Families and individuals participate in one-on-one, HUD-approved, and confidential sessions with ACTS Housing Counselors. The goal is to develop an individualized road map on personal finances and credit management success in order to become a home buyer. Sessions include lessons on obtaining a free annual credit report, review of credit history, establishing good credit sources, budgeting, overcoming personal finance and credit obstacles, presenting financial information to lenders in order to qualify for mortgage loans, obtaining a pre-approval for a loan, applying for a loan, accessing grant money and loans, and other steps towards home ownership.

ACTS represents families during planning, coordination, and execution of rehab plans. As experienced rehab professionals, we help homebuyers with the creation of an itemized list of all repairs needed for safe, code-compliant, and affordable occupancy. We can assist families to obtain proposals from qualified contractors to perform each repair. Once final rehab contracts are executed, ACTS helps homeowners expedite their rehab project. The rehab management service helps families access specialized grant and loan products for qualified rehab projects, coordinates volunteer rehab experiences, and provides professional rehab advice to homeowners completing sweat equity projects.
