Down Payment Resource will soon be available in two new states
We are excited to welcome the Southwest MLS, Inc., covering Central New Mexico, and the Multiple Listing Service of Jackson, Miss. Inc., serving Jackson, Mississippi, as Down Payment Resource customers.
The Southwest Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (SWMLS) is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS® (GAAR) and represents 2,800 members, making it the largest, local professional trade association in Central New Mexico.
The MLS of Jackson serves approximately 1,500 members in the Jackson, Mississippi area. SWMLS and MLS of Jackson will launch Down Payment Resource to their members October.
Soon all assistance-eligible property listings in both markets will display the DPR logo, allowing Realtors to view and easily share the information with their clients and invite them to complete a short survey that will match them with available programs. DPR will also appear on eligible listings in both MLSs' consumer home search websites, helping to provide even greater awareness about down payment assistance programs. Across both markets, more than 70 percent of listings are eligible for one or more down payment assistance programs.
