How to Qualify for Home Buying Program

Homes for Heroes provides Hero Rewards as a way to give back to the heroes who give so much! Qualifying is simple: contact your local Homes for Heroes affiliate and fill out the registration form. No hoops to jump through and no “catches”. If you are a firefighter then you are eligible to receive your Hero Rewards in two different ways:


Just by doing what you do every day as a firefighter qualifies you for significant discounts and exclusive savings! When you work with a Homes for Heroes affiliate broker to buy, sell, or refinance a home, then you will receive discounts on real estate related services. Additionally, if you are buying a home, you will receive CASH BACK at closing!

How Much Money Can I Save with Homes for Heroes?

Savings for a real estate transaction can vary, however, the average Hero Reward is $2,400!! You receive your savings through discounted services through Homes for Heroes. This includes discounts on Realtor commissions, as well as mortgage, title, and inspection services. When you buy a house, you will also receive $700 back for every $100,000 in purchase price. That means that if you are buying a $500,000 house, you will receive a check after closing for $3,500!! Think of what you can buy for your new home with that kind of extra cash.

the average Hero Reward is $2,400!

This home buying program for firefighters makes it easy to save money when you buy a new home. However, Homes for Heroes can also save you money on other purchases for your home. Homes for Heroes has partnered with some of the country’s most popular retailers to offer discounts just for shopping with them as a firefighter or other hero. Just shop right through the Homes for Heroes website to receive special offers and discounts. This includes retailers like Target, Columbia, ADT, and Under Armour! There are also discounts from local retailers in your area.

You Are Actually Giving Back When You Get Your Hero Reward

Maybe the most important part of the Homes for Heroes program is that you are actually giving back to other heroes when you get your hero reward. It is called the Circle of Giving. When you use a Homes for Heroes affiliate, not only do you receive a discount, but that affiliate is also donating a portion of their earnings to fund the Homes for Heroes Foundation. The Homes for Heroes Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides financial support to heroes facing a housing crisis or who need urgent financial assistance. Since 2009, local heroes have helped the Homes for Heroes Foundation provide over $1,000,000 in grants, just by collecting their own Hero Reward!
