Down Payment Assistance

We are looking to buy our first home.  We are first time home buyers and currently have $6000 for a downpayment.  We want to be able to put down  5% for the purchase of our house but currently do not have it.  Are there any more programs out there that will help with down payment assistance in the state of GA?

There is a Georgia Dream homeownship program.   All down payment assistance programs have limitations on income, home price etc. 

The other option - put together a frugal budget to save like crazy so you can recognize your dream sooner than later.

The City of Savannah and also the state of Georgia offer down payment assistance programs. Depending on your job, some you will not have to pay back! Which lender are you currently working with? Please send me a message I'd love to help you out!

You could receive a gift for the downpayment or you can go FHA the downpayment is only 3.5% and can be gifted also.

Good luck!
