Home Buying in 33033>Question Details

rblair_74, Home Buyer in Pembroke Pines, FL

I have had a home in the past in Virginia. We are looking to purchase a home in Homestead or Cutler Bay FL and were told about the MMAP program.

Asked by rblair_74, Pembroke Pines, FL Sun Sep 29, 2013

Would we still qualify for the program if we have never purchased a home in Florida? Are we considered new home buyers?

Thank you. We told the sales person we owned and she kept pushing the program as a perk that they would cover most of closing. After looking into it and knowing we wouldn't qualify for it she kept insisting. Talk about wanting the sale! if that was the case then maybe they should consider taking offers and coming down in price
