Looking Out From the Garage

Gwinnett Homestretch Program

Ken Cook and I are working with Gwinnett Homstretch Down Payment Assistance. As a buyer, you need to have $1000 going into the purchase, but Gwinnett Homestretch may contribute up to $7,500, if you qualify. There are a few things to keep in mind:

  • It is paid as a 0% loan, which will be forgiven after 5 years of using the property as your principal residence. In effect, that makes it a grant... there are no payments due during the 5 years.
  • You will be required to complete an 8-hour counseling class from a HUD approved Housing Counseling Agency.
  • Total household income must not exceed HUD lmits, based on household size. Households range from 1-8 people.
    • 2 people - HUD max is $46,000
    • 4 people - HUD max is $57,450
    • There are different income maximums for other household sizes.
  • Investors are NOT eligible for this program.
  • The home MUST pass an inspection by Gwinnett County PRIOR to closing.
  • Purchase Price may NOT exceed $200,000.

There are other requirements, such as being able to qualify for a mortgage. Contact Ken and I for details.
