Hi Lee,

SONYMA is a great option. The ability to get a sellers concession is another good idea to help pay the closing costs. I suggest you speak with a mortgage broker so that he/she can explain all the programs and financing options available to you. If you don't know a mortgage broker, I can recommend a great one.

Good luck in your home search

Lee, Look into the SONYMA Down Payment Loan Assistance. You can get up to $15,000 toward your purchase. As you live in the home over time, the loan will be forgiven. If you would like more info on this give me a call. 914-419-8442. Good Luck, John

Dear Lee,

There are programs that you need to qualify for in order to get closing cost help. I do not know if you meet that criteria. Also, the seller can make it possible by creative financing, which is very attractive. All these possibilities have criteria that must be met. If you would like to have more info, please e-mail me,, or call me at 914-714-2004. Thank you.

Hello Lee, Can better explain by writing a seller's concession which basically raises the cost of the unit or House to give you back that money at closing as a credit. For the great service that you deserve an all explanations, please email me at or call my cell which is 845 304 3040 for the great service that you deserve! Allan
