GRANT $$ - NO REPAYMENT
With the recent sequestration still in all our minds, it seems odd that El Paso County would offer down payment assistance GRANT (meaning YOU DON"T HAVE TO REPAY THIS) of 4% of your mortgage amount. Pretty sweet, eh?
The program is called Colorado “Turnkey” Mortgage Origination Program
==>Getting pre approved makes you a powerful buyer AND you learn with how little you actually need to finally buy your dream home.
So whats the catch?
