South Carolina has an excellent program for first time buyers who are in some specific professions. These are the people that we consider heroes, and the state has created a financing program to assist them!
If you are in one of the following career fields, and are considering buying a home, you need to check out this program!! It will help you with up to $5000 in downpayment assistance, and is also offering 3.75% financing!!
There are a lot of factors-- for instance, if you live in Aiken, Anderson, Charleston, Greenwood, Greenville, Lancaster, Lexington, Oconee, Pickens, Richland, Spartanburg, or York counties, the definition of "first time buyer" is not having had ownership in a house in the last 3 years. Do you live in one of the remaining counties?? If so, then you qualify as long as it's the only home that you will own; you can technically close on a house that you are selling within the same day, and still qualify for this loan!!
Go to my web page, www.wendythomasrealtor.com/palmettoheroes and view the flyer, then click the link to read more about income requirements, etc. This is an awesome way for those who serve us to get into a home, with a little assistance from the state!
