Programs Offering Down Payment Assistance in Central Florida

Down Payment Assistance has become a popular option for people looking for a home to buy and live in. Buyers are able to present competitive offers to sellers because while in the past buyers were requesting the seller help pay for buyer closing costs, now these government programs are covering the buyer’s closing costs so the buyers are no longer asking sellers to help pay closing costs. The result? Buyer’s with minimal cash reserves are able to bring competitive offers to the market and are buying houses!

Here is a summary of a few Down Payment Assistance programs in Central Florida. Please use the included links to each program for a full description of benefits, requirements, terms, and qualifications:
