Down Payment Assistance
Florida down payment assistance programs are now available!
Saving for a down payment can be difficult. Let's face it, you have a lot of bills every month, so putting away something extra for a future down payment is a stretch to say the least. Your rent keeps going up, and you see home prices continue to rise as well. You know buying a home is a good investment, but it just seems out of reach.
You are not alone if you are struggling to save for a down payment. But the good news is, there is help! There are many organizations in Florida who help home owners with down payment assistance and grants, and there are even 100% financing programs still available such as USDA and VA loans. You can become a home owner right now and start building equity for your future!
The Florida Assist (FL Assist) Loan
Borrowers purchasing in the county selected may also be eligible to receive down payment assistance (DPA) through the FL Assist Second Mortgage Program. The FL Assist offers the following:
• Up to $7,500
• 0%, deferred second mortgage
The FL Assist is not forgivable. Repayment is deferred, except in the event of the sale, transfer, satisfaction of the first mortgage, refinancing of the property or until such a time the mortgagor ceases to occupy the property, the Florida Assist will become payable in full.
