5 STAR Texas Advantage Program
SETH has a mortgage loan program that provides assistance for homebuyers in the form of a gift. The assistance provided by the program can be used for the borrower’s down payment and closing costs. There are several options of assistance available. Borrowers will select the amount of assistance that best meets their needs and loan product. Actual amount of assistance is based on the final loan amount. The maximum amount of assistance provided is the 6% Grant, which is 6% of the total loan amount.
There is no repayment or recapture period for the assistance provided. There is no second lien on the property. This program DOES NOT have a First Time Homebuyer requirement. Buyers must be income eligible and purchasing a home in one of the program areas. All buyers on the mortgage loan will need to complete the on-line SETH Homebuyer Education Class.
