We're pretty sure we qualify for the Florida First Time Home Buyers Program ($7500 toward down/closing, repaid when we sell the house).

Asked by Modes, Jacksonville, FL Sun Feb 17, 2013

My husband is employed and I have SS and private income disability for myself and minor son. Does my son's SS money count toward our income? Thanks!

The program your talking about is the Head Start to Home Ownership program. Jenny Blue at Compass Bank is there V.P. of the C.R.A .programs. She wrote many of the guidelines and grants used in the first time buyer programs. I have closed several 100 homes using those programs with her. She is the BEST person to work with. I specialize in working with 1st time buyers having been sales manager for Soforenko First Homes who built more homes in Jacksonville over 50 yrs than any other builder ever has. I have the skill package you need to navigate the government issues you will encounter. Please give me a call and I will set up a meeting with Jenny and myself to answer additional questions you may have and a plan of action to get you moving toward home ownership. I look forward to speaking with you.

Mortgage lenders are on top of these types of questions as programs vary and change. Suggest that you speak with your bank or credit union to determine your options. If you like I can recommend someone.

All the best
