Low-interest Loans and Down Payment Assistance Up to $8000 are Now Available For Local Heroes Looking to Buy a Home
SC Housing has recently announced that the “Palmetto Heroes Program” is now back to give assistance toward home ownership to selected community personnel in the field of law enforcement, US army or air force, firefighting, education, and healthcare services.
If you are looking to buy a home and you work on any of the fields mentioned above, take the chance to apply for this program because you will have the opportunity to purchase a home with a 3% mortgage interest rate, 30 year fixed and down payment assistance of $5000 on an existing home and $8000 on a newly constructed home.
