If you're on the fence about buying a home in Madison County it's time to get off. 

Not only can you cash in on the first time buyer tax credit (up to $8,000) but the Madison County Grant Program has secured more funds.  This means you can receive $3,000 of down payment assistance in the form of a forgive-able loan from Madison County.

Here are the criteria -

  • The HomeBuyer program is only for first time buyers.  A first time buyer is defined as someone who has not owned a home before, in the past three years or someone who has owned a home with someone else in the past, but has been displaced due to divorce or death.
  • Credit score of 620 or above
  • Other income requirements apply.  The program funds are in the form of a forgive-able loan - call or e-mail for details.

The perfect storm has now arrived for first time buyers in Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Collinsville, Maryville, Troy, Bethalto, Godfrey, Alton and more.  Prices are low, choices are high and now you have upwards of $11,000 in incentives to buy.

Don't delay.  The grant money goes quickly and the time to take advantage of the first time buyer tax credit is running out.  In order to close (safely) before the December 1st deadline you will need to have your new home picked out no later than October 15th.  That's only 45 days away.
