First Time Home Buyer

Buying your first home is an important milestone in your life. Here at First Reliance Mortgage, we understand that finding the right financing plan is as important as finding a home that fits your lifestyle.

To help you get started on solid footing, First Reliance Mortgage can assist first-time home buyers in accessing matching funds for the down payment and closing costs incurred when purchasing a home. For every $1 you contribute to
your home purchase, you can receive $4 in matching funds, up to $5,000. Funding is available to qualified first-time homebuyers*

In addition to meeting income eligibility requirements, homebuyers must:

  • Contribute at least $1,000 toward the purchase of the home
  • Occupy the home as a primary residence for at least five years
  • Complete a homebuyer education and financial literacy course specified by FHLBank Atlanta

First Reliance Mortgage prides itself on providing accessible and feasible financial resources and mortgage products to first-time homebuyers. Please contact one of our loan officers to determine if you are eligible for First-time Homebuyer funding and to begin your application process.
