Bond 77 rolls out new program servicer Down Payment Assistance for first time home buyers still available.
It took a while, however the latest news for first time home buyer down payment assistance in Texas is that the bond 77 Texas Down payment assistance program is back after transitioning to another servicing company.
If you have been waiting for funds to become available after the after the last program servicer terminated their involvement with the program you can now get a new start with the new year. You may want to hurry because program funds are low the current allotment “Lot 17” is expected to be exhausted by January 15, 2012. As always with all Texas first time home buyer down payment assistance programs this program will not receive any funds once funds are exhausted.
UPDATE: This downpayment assistance program is out of funds and was last checked Friday July 21st. This information is accurate as of that date. Please call our office at our contact page for more information on the 100% financing programs available in your area.
Although additional funds have not been allocated to the Bond 77 down payment assistance program funds that were not used in previous allocations have been recycled and will be available with each allotment.
Bond 77 allotment 17 funds are now availabe. As noted in my previous post in an effort to lengthen the amount of time that Bond 77 Down Payment assistance is available TDHCA has slashed the amount of down payment assistance available to each buyer by 20%.
The interest rate for the TDHCA Texas down payment assistance for the new allotment #17 is only slightly lower since previous allotments even though market rates have fallen dramatically . The program is rapidly running out of money and is not expected to last much longer. To make sure you receive down payment assistance in Texas you need to have your current lender register your loan immediately and close your loan by February 15th.
