The State of Florida has a first time homebuyer Bond Program that may be able to give you up to $10k to buy a home!

You MUST work with an APPROVED lender to get this money so I would start first with one of the State of Florida approved lenders, Gina Harris with iBeria Bank mortgage is very experienced with this program.

You may also be able to participate in some of Pasco County's downpayment programs and Gina is very experienced with those, too.

Here is a link to the Bond program info:

Hope this helps

All the best,

Best of success,

Liz DeAmbrose answered:
The first step to home buying is being pre-approved by a lender. The lender will not only tell you what you qualify to buy but ways to improve your credit score. Credit can be repaired and usually in a reasonable amount of time. A pre-approval letter accompanies written offers on property. The seller needs to know that as a buyer you are capable of financing and closing. ... more
