Welcome to the Buy Springfield Now Initiative! We are thrilled that you hopefully will choose to purchase your home in the City of Springfield. Buy Springfield Now is an initiative out of the Mayor’s office in the City of Springfield that supports local homeowners and prospective homebuyers. A crucial element of our programming is providing knowledge and quality referrals to homeowners, as well as those wishing to become a homeowner. The Buy Springfield Now Initiative has helped close to 400 families in the past six years purchase homes in Springfield. We are very proud to announce the launch of this brand new, state-of-the-art website!
By using one of our participating Vendors, and purchasing a home in Springfield, you will receive closing costs reduction by the lender you choose, and information about the best loan programs available in the market. The Realtors, Vendors, and other real estate professionals listed on our site are also some of the best in the industry.
