Down Payment Assistance
Watson Mortgage Corp. is one of the top participants in Florida Housing’s down payment and closing cost assistance program, which offers a second mortgage loan to assist eligible homebuyers with their down payment and closing costs. This program is only available for homebuyers who have used Florida Housing's first mortgage loan; it is not available as stand-alone assistance.
The Florida Assist (FL Assist)
Borrowers purchasing in the county selected may also be eligible to receive down payment assistance (DPA) through the FL Assist Second Mortgage Program. The FL Assist offers the following:
- Up to $7,500
- 0%, deferred second mortgage
The FL Assist is not forgivable. Repayment is deferred, except in the event of the sale, transfer, satisfaction of the first mortgage, refinancing of the property or until such a time the mortgagor ceases to occupy the property at which time, the Florida Assist will become payable in full.
