There is BOTH St. Tammany Parish bond money left AND STATE level but the parish is a little faster to close and with a lower interest rate of 5.9%. Each program has their own guidelines so you will need to talk to a lender directly to see if you qualify. Email or call me if you need the name of a lender.

If and when new bond money is provided, there are restrictions. the biggest is that you will be penalized BIG TIME if you sell your home within 10 years!

the average homeowner sells their home after 7 years

How does the bond money work? Do you have to be a first time home buyer, first time buyer, certain income level, etc.? Any other qulaification requirements or recommendations?

Okay, so you called someone and they told you no. I am sitting at a party now with the loan officer and she says yes they have bond money right now. and that is for applicants that are new as well.

I am sticking with real estate, ,as an agent, its my job to inform my buyers of options, and good thing i know because there are plenty of people who call the wrong people and get bad answers.

I did call, and guess what? There is no more STATE BOND MONEY for new applicants ! There may be additional monies available in a few weeks!

what you may be referring to are those fortunate buyers who applied 60 days ago!

stick with real estate
