Down Payment Assistance in Bryan or College Station
Many first time homebuyers ask about downpayment assistance or special lending programs. For the first time in years there are some new lending programs specifically targeted towards first time buyers and we will focus on those at a later time.What you must know about downpayment assistance in Bryan or College Station
Both Bryan and College Station have downpayment assistance programs directly through the city. These programs apply to income qualified buyers who have good credit and can qualify for a loan. They are based on the number of people in the family and will loan up to $7,500 in downpayment assistance. The income guidelines are quite strict and are related to the poverty level. These programs fund in October, so it is especially important that you be one of the first to apply.
It's also important to use an agent, such as my team, that is fully qualified to participate in these programs, as there are special provisions to the contract that must be completed.
