Down Payment Assistance for First Time Home Buyers (and Existing) in Texas - Bond 77

Even though the Government Tax Credit program is now over (unless you have been overseas military, then you still have one year to utilise), there are still programs available to help you buy a home if you are a first time buyer or even an existing buyer, subject to some limitations.

On June 1st, the Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs (TDHCA) implemented a new bond program to assist buyers with their down payment when purchasing a home. “Bond 77" is the largest allotment of it's kind in Texas and may be as much as $500 Million in funds. This program was released just in time to fill the void left behind by the home buyer tax credit which expired on April 30th.

Bond 77 has liberal income limits, is available to existing home buyers & first time homebuyers! This is an affordable alternative for down payment funds.

Contact us for more information on this program and how you can buy a home in the Austin and Highland Lakes areas of Central Texas with downpayment assistance funds!
