For Real Estate Pros

Welcome Real Estate Professionals

The Westmoreland County Department of Planning and Development is working to revitalize neighborhoods and communities by building and renovating affordable new homes for families.

Revitalization and homeownership programs are currently underway in Jeannette, Monessen and Youngwood. All of the new homes available for purchase are commissionable for real estate agents.

  • Vicki Pilato with Berkshire Hathaway Services and Christa Ross of RE/MAX Select Realty are working with the Affordable Homes Programs offered by Westmoreland Community Action.

  • Bonnie Halinka with Century 21 is working with Mon Valley Initiative to Market 964 Athalia Avenue in Monessen.

In General

  • Homebuyers qualify based on total household income, credit worthiness, and the number of people residing in the home.
  • The home price is based on what the eligible homebuyer can afford as determined by the mortgage lender.
  • Closing and down payment assistance may be available for first time homebuyers who are income eligible.

Helping families toward home ownership

If you have a client who has experienced a problem purchasing a home because of income or limited cash or credit worthiness, they may be able to realize the dream of home ownership through help on a down payment and closing costs and credit counseling.

The Process

  • Tell your client about the houses available and encourage them to visit homes to buy on this website.
  • If your client is interested in seeing any of the homes, contact the realtor listed below to see if the buyer initially qualifies.
  • Arrange for a private showing of the house with your client.
  • If your client is interested in purchasing the home, they will need to fill out a written application that asks total household income. Eventually the buyer will also need to provide bank statements and verification of all household income.
  • Once the signed application has been submitted, the qualification process takes only a few days.
  • After the buyer has been qualified, we will assist in identifying available financing.
