Group of Professional Realtors – Helping first time home Buyers throughout Central Florida
The Fred Franks Team of Sellstate Next Generation Realty is an Ocala-based real estate team that’s deeply familiar with the local housing market and committed to providing you personalized solutions that make sense for you and your goals. Our team is particularly focused on helping first-time buyers. One of the ways that we aim to do this is through the State of Florida Time Homebuyer Program, which is a cooperative endeavor between mortgage lenders and the state government meant to support and promote housing for qualified borrowers undeserved by traditional private mortgage lending. Our expertise can help you navigate the process and get into the home of your dreams for less money, less hassle, and less time!
Our team offers a number of personalized services that can greatly assist first-time home buyers. Our organization can connect you to qualifying loans for first-time home buyers in 16 Counties in Central Florida. Buyers in Lake, Orange and Seminole Counties are qualified for up to $15,000 in down payment assistance in the form of a zero-interest deferred-payment loan, while buyers in the other 13 Counties may receive up to $7,500 in assistance. Of course, we also offer the full range of realty services – we will help you fine-tune your goals, search out the neighborhoods and the homes that are right for you, and provide guidance through the complex offering, negotiating, and closing process. Take advantage of our expertise to get the best deal on the best home that’s out there – just waiting for you.
Recipients of loans through the State Housing Program must meet certain income and purchase limits depending on household size. One person needs to earn under $57,700 annually, while a family of four can earn up to $66,780 to qualify. The homes being purchased must cost less than $258,690. Once your eligibility for the program has been determined, you must also qualify for a loan (with a credit score of 640 or over) and complete an online Home buyer Education Class. You may also be eligible for a Mortgage Certificate Program tax credit offered through Florida Housing, which would allow you to deduct up to fifty percent of mortgage interest paid (up to a maximum of $2,000) from your federal taxes, which can help you keep current on your mortgage.
