Buy your first home with little money out-of-pocket using CalHFA's CalPLUS with ZIP program

The CalPLUS program can help you buy your first home even if you need a little help with a down payment or closing costs, thanks to CalHFA's MyHome program for down payment and the Zero Interest Program (ZIP) for closing costs. The 30-year mortgage has a slightly higher fixed interest rate compared to our standard first mortgage but includes enough mortgage assistance to help you become a homeowner now.
