If you’ve ever had the desire to own a home of your own, you may have been daunted by the lack of down payment money. It’s tough to save money when you’re barely making ends meet. But, if there’s a will, there’s a way. Sometimes people save their income tax return or, recently, the economic stimulus check has opened some doors for buyers.
First time home buyers often ask me if I know anything about down payment assistance programs. There are several programs out there. You can Google for more information. Often they are county based. Sometimes they run out of money for the year and folks have to wait for the next funding cycle.
Not every mortgage broker or loan originator seems to have access to these down payment assistance programs but Watson Mortgage Corp definitely has access. Click to view a flyer. I recently closed a deal where I represented the buyer and he came to closing with zero dollars! Not only did Michael Argula of Watson Mortgage get my buyer down payment assistance money, but we closed EARLY. That very rarely happens. Not only is Michael a pleasure to work with, he’s an efficient professional who just happens to foster pets who need a forever home. To find out if you qualify for down payment assistance, please click to contact Michael directly. Then, call me at 407-236-6559 and let’s go shopping!
