The grant and assistance programs are added to a loan program of your choice and qualifications. Below is an outline of some of the most common loan programs used today:

The USDA Home Loan is a 100% financing option. You can opt to have the assistance program to help with closing costs on this program or have it paid by the seller.

The VA Home Loan is another 100% financing option so there is no down payment requirement, however, you can opt into Down Payment Assistance Texas to help with closing costs or have it paid by the seller.

The FHA Home Loan is 96.5% financing so it requires a 3.5% down payment investment. This is where Down Payment Assistance Texas provides the most benefit on home loan programs that require a down payment such as the FHA Loan. The Down Payment Assistance will range from 2% to 7% of the sales price so it can cover your entire down payment requirement on the FHA Home Loan Program. Most consumers opt to have their closing costs rolled in (although you can choose to pay these out of pocket). A well designed/structured Down Payment Assistance Texas program will usually not require any additional funds at closing. Although, it is a possibility some borrowers may need to bring some funds to closing which can range from $0-$1000 +/-, it is much less than having to pay thousands for your down payment and thousands more for closing costs.

The Conventional Home Loan Program can require anywhere from 3% to 20% or more down. Some people think conventional loans do not have Down Payment Assistance programs available, but that is untrue. You can get a down payment assistance program in Texas with a conventional loan. The assistance will range from 3% to 7% and will help satisfy your down payment investment. On a conventional loan, you can roll in up to 3% of your closing costs.
