Question about down payment

Asked by Aaron, Atlanta, GA Mon Apr 29, 2013

We've been looking at moving lately, and one of the places we looked at was Colorado Springs. They have a bond program there that will cover 4% of the house payment with certain limitations and income requirements. Does Atlanta have anything similar to that?

Help the community by answering this question:


The local bond programs will cover certain percentages of the down payment, but not the house payment for purchasing purposes. If you actually did mean to type house payment, please be mindful that those programs are available in Metro Atlanta, particularly for distressed home owners.

Yes there are some very good down payment assistance programs in the Atlanta area. Most of which are Intown Atlanta and not the suburbs and they do have limited income requirements. Several of the programs will contribute well over 4% of the purchase price. I'd be happy to discuss each of these in greater detail to see if it’s a good fit for you.

There are many programs available. To the extend a program reduces the amount down by 4% it reduces the payment by 4%.
