We help put the pieces of home ownership together!

Omni Affordable Housing Inc’s mission is to educate individuals, families, and underserved communities to build wealth and provide home ownership by building and refurbishing homes to be sold at an affordable price.

Our vision is to bridge the gap in homeownership so that everyone may have an affordable place they can call home. We can achieve this through partnerships with government, state, and community organizations and the utilization of creative & affordable financial options. If you are a veteran or a person in the low to moderate-income bracket this program is perfect for you. Let us help you put the pieces of homeownership together.

our goals image

                “A decent home and suitable living environment for every American Family.”

This phrase is from the Housing Act of 1949, enacted as part of the “Fair Deal” promoted by President Harry Truman. It’s the clearest statement of a goal for federal legislation in this area. Seven decades later, the United States has not met that goal. Omni Affordable Housing, Inc. is dedicated to picking up the torch and helping make the Housing Act of 1949 a reality for all.

Omni’s Build It Better program will identify tracks of land in areas of current and future job growth. Building homes in these desired and growth areas allow the potential homeowner to live and work in the same area, allowing families to spend more time together, instead of spending hours on the road traveling to and from work. In some cases, this will allow parents to stay at home, if they choose, during the first formidable years of their child’s life or allow caring for an elderly parent.

As part of their Home Ownership Program, OAHI offers first-time homebuyers a range of services to help get mortgage ready, find a home, choose a lender, and access special financing opportunities, free of charge.  https://www.fanniemae.com/education

Housing Programs

Housing Stability - OAHI exists to provide high-quality housing for low- and moderate-income citizens of Virginia. In pursuit of this goal, the agency strives to deliver the best possible service in a people-sensitive fashion. All efforts revolve around the premise that the quality of our work directly affects the quality of life of those served.  Move In, Move Up, Move Out. OAHI offers several ways to help Virginia residents who need to move into stable housing and work toward self-sufficiency. Through our public housing program, we assist families with low-cost permanent housing. Through our Housing Choice Voucher program, formerly known as Section 8, qualified applicants can secure housing in the private market. For nearly all our customers, the dream of owning a home is available through our Smart-Based Homeownership Program.

Available Assistance

The OAHI Home Ownership Program provides first-time homebuyers with a range of services to assist in purchasing their first home.

There are private counseling sessions to review your credit, income, and assets to help identify any obstacles. In the case that there needs to be corrective action, counselors will help you develop and stick to a sensible plan.

We hold 8-hour Homebuyer Workshops to qualify for many first-time homebuyer loan products in the area.

OAHI helps with loan prequalification, and applications, and identifies special financing programs. Additionally, we refer borrowers to realtors and lenders that are particularly knowledgeable about the first-time homebuyers' market.

Post-Purchase Counseling can benefit clients who need extra support to stick to their household budgets or face unexpected circumstances that affect their ability to pay their mortgage. OAHI can help advise first-time homeowners with several issues like expensive maintenance issues, refinancing, or even foreclosure.

Omni Affordable Housing Inc is a one-stop-shop of sorts for potential homeowners. We incorporate homeownership education and assist you from the beginning to the end of the entire process. Through the acquisition of land for development, and rehabilitation of damaged/abandoned homes, we guarantee your first home will be affordable. Our clients will only have to worry about completing our home buyer program, which consists of these three steps:

Step One: Prep
  • Clients bring their prepared financial documents to be reviewed by the OAHI team. After the documents are looked over we also discuss how much work will need to be done during step two.

Step Two: Homework
  • Clients start our Home Ownership Competency Course and start any other programs necessary to get on track to buy a home. This can be the lengthiest part of the program.

Step Three: Home Buying
  • After completing any programs assigned in step two, the home buying process begins. Clients choose from one of the many OAHI homes and achieve their dream of home ownership.
