Service Details

Description

Minnesota Urban and Rural Homestead Program (MURL) is a first-time homebuyer program for low- to moderate-income families who are unable to purchase a home through conventional means.


Eligible families must be considered "at risk" for home ownership. Barriers such as past credit problems, lack of a down payment, and low wages are all factors that limit a household's ability to own a home and would be considered "risk factors" for home ownership.

Buyers must pay 25% of their gross monthly income as the monthly house payment. Hazard insurance and property taxes are escrowed and are included in the 25% payment.
