Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program for buyers:

What exactly is the Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program?

The Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program is a loan product available to Tribes, Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs), and Tribal members.  This loan can be used on or off reservation for purchase, rehab, refinance, or new construction.  The Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee program is a tool for Tribes to bring more housing to tribal communities and other areas.  Section 184 Loans are used for SFR, single-family housing (1-4 units), with a fixed-rate loan for 30 years or less. Section 184 cannot be used for commercial structures or with any type of Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs).

Who qualifies for the HUD 184 loan?

  • American Indians or Alaska Natives who are members of a federally recognized tribe
  • Federally recognized Indian tribes
  • Tribally designated housing entities
  • Indian Housing Authorities

Yes, Penny O’Brien knows the HUD184 program very well.  She can help you understand how it works. The Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program is an amazing home mortgage product specifically designed for American Indian and Alaska Native families, Alaska villages, tribes, or tribally designated housing entities. Congress established this program in 1992 to facilitate homeownership and increase access to capital in Native American Communities.

With Section 184 financing buyers can get into a home with a low down payment. One of Penny’s single mom buyers only had to come in with $1700 total to buy a 3 bedroom townhome with a 2 car garage. It was cheaper for her to buy a home than to rent.  A couple from Alaska bought a two bedroom townhome with a 2 car garage, they were happy to have the program available for them to use.

Section 184 loans can be used, both on and off native lands, for new construction, rehabilitation, purchase of an existing home, or refinance.

Section 184 is synonymous with home ownership in Indian Country.

Penny has helped so many buyers using this program, she believes it’s a fantastic program for the well deserving population that qualifies for it.  Please feel free to call her for more information.  Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Section 184 is adding to the marketability and value of the Native assets and strengthening the financial standing of Native communities.

Is Las Vegas eligible for the program?

Yes, Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, Green Valley, North Las Vegas, Southwest and Northwest Las Vegas all fit the criteria for this loan. The program has grown to include eligible areas beyond tribal trust land.

Testimonials

We're Proud of Our Work

Penny is the greatest. She was a great help in helping me understand all the paper work. I left it in her hands, I trusted her, and my house sold
within a week! I got every penny I asked for. If I ever move back to
Vegas, and am in the market for another house, she would be the first
person I called.

Deb,Valpariso, Indiana

“Penny O’Brien has been my real estate agent for the past three months and just closed the deal on my Summerlin home. Penny has been a pleasure to work with, earning my respect and admiration for getting my family through the stressful task of selling a house. The time spent with Penny has given me the opportunity to observe a true professional at work. Her ability to get the job done, and done right has certainly paid off.

I am also a real stickler for well-documented paperwork and Penny certainly showed her ability to perform this task. Her paperwork was flawless, leaving absolutely no loose ends behind. Penny was also available at the most inconvenient times and frequently made trips to my home at all hours of the day and night. Simply put, I would recommend Penny to assist all of my friends and family when their real estate needs.”

Warren Hensman, Summerlin

“Penny made the selling of my house easier than I ever imagined. She not only brought in a lot of traffic into my property, but she sold it quickly… at full price. I highly recommend her.”

Michael, Summerlin, LV
