First Time Homebuyers Assistance

WHAT IS THE FIRST TIME HOMEBUYERS ASSISTANCE FUND?

The Telluride Association of RealtorsĀ® First Time Homebuyers Assistance Fund is a private sector affordable housing initiative conceived by members of the Colorado Association of REALTORS. The Telluride Association of REALTORS adopted this idea in 2002 and set up their own approved First Time Homebuyers Assistance Fund.

The fund is controlled and administered by the Telluride Association of REALTORS. The Fund was established for the purposes of facilitating and increasing housing opportunities within the local region served by TAR.
Participating brokers give back to their community by donating a portion of each closing along with the cooperation of Alpine Title & Land Title Guarantee Co. to the Telluride Association of REALTORS First Time Homebuyers Assistance Fund.
