Did you know you can still get down payment assistance for the purchase of your first home? (First home meaning you haven’t owned real estate in the last 36 months.) Well it’s true! You may qualify for up to $7,500 in grant money from Gwinnett County. Their are income caps based on your household size and of course you do have to meet standard FHA guidelines, along with other criteria, but this program (Home Stretch) is available…you only need 1% in the deal! You could buy a home for less money up front AND less money per month than what renting costs.
