Do you know of any reliable down payment assistance programs in Hillsborough county that would help?

Dear Jacqueline,

Depending on your income and number of dependents, you may be able to get money from Hillsborough county. If you are a first time homebuyer, the county still has up to $8k to lend you (you pay it back when you get your tax rebate). Also there are other programs you may qualify for.

Also depending on where the property is located, you may be able to get a USDA 100% mortgage with no money down. And if you want to go to Pasco County, they also have generous downpayment assistance programs.

Hope this helps.

I did already answer this question for you when I called....
there's also a way to get 8k stimulus in advance and use it as down payment.
If you have other queries, I'll be glad to meet you and husband at my office and get you a home dream.
best regards,

Are you working with a lender? They should be able to identify such resources for you. If not...maybe you should explore your options.
