TDHCA Cuts Bond 77 assistance 20% effective March 1st

(Last Updated On: March 4, 2016)



Authorized Mortgage Banker for Bond 77

As of March 1st, 2011 TDHCA bond 77 will cut down payment assistance by 20% to home buyers costing buyers thousands more.

UPDATE: This downpayment assistance program is out of funds and was last checked Friday October 13th.  This information is accurate as of that date.  Please call our office at our contact page for more information on the 100% financing programs available in your area.

Bond 77 allotment 9 funds are now exhausted.  In an effort to lengthen the amount of time that Bond 77 Down Payment assistance is available TDHCA has slashed the amount of down payment assistance available to each buyer.

What does this mean?  The average buyer will have come up with $1,000 to as much as $2,500 more to purchase a home utilizing bond 77.

The rate for the new allotment #10 is now 5.35% to take advantage of this program before further cuts you need to fill out our online application here as soon as possible before funds are exhausted.  As mentioned on my original post the program will not be re-funded once funds are exhausted.

If you are already working with another lender you will need to contact them to obtain the assistance.  If they cannot do bond 77 we will be happy to assist you to qualify using our online application here.
