Good News for Affordable Housing Buyers!

Effective as of April 1, 2024, an important update regarding the eligibility requirements for the City & County’s Affordable Housing Rules:

The City & County of Honolulu has removed the eligibility requirement for Affordable Housing applicants to demonstrate a monthly housing payment comprising less than 33% of their total gross household income.

With this change, your lender can now assess your qualification based on their bank’s internal standards for income and debt, thereby expanding opportunities for interested applicants. For individuals considering or previously attempting to apply for an Affordable unit, it is essential to take note of this latest change.
