TDHCA Bond 77 -Just in time to fill the void that the homebuyer tax credit will be leaving…

On May 3 the TDHCA will roll out a new bond program to assist buyers with their down payment when purchasing a home.  “Bond 77”  is its largest allotment to date and is purported to be $500 million in funds.  This program will be released just in time to fill the void left behind by the home-buyer tax credit expiring April 30. With liberal income limits available to existing home buyers and first-time home buyers alike, this affordable alternative for down payment will surely be a hit.   Below I have listed some of the major guidelines.  For more information feel free to email me at John.McClellan@SupremeLending.com.

    Great news indeed.  What is the amount that can be borrowed for closing costs?

    place I want to buy.

    John, we have offices in Texas and Los Angeles and we are buying REO’s in California primarily.  Most of our homes are for first time buyers and sell from $200,000-300,000.

    Will this program help our company?  Thanks, Robert Newman  1-818-906-0608
