Florida Hometown Heroes Program Made More Rewarding

The Florida Hometown Heroes programs offers a door to homeownership to those who serve our community. But we've added a feature that makes it eve more rewarding. Learn more at ocalahomes.online.
Members of the military, veterans, firefighters, educators, nurses and other healthcare professionals, law enforcement officers and child care employees are some of the heroes who may participate!

Ocala Home Guide Realty supports the Florida Hometown Heroes Program. The State’s efforts to make home ownership more affordable for our hometown heroes are indeed commendable. Therefore, we have chosen to add a little benefit of our own. We offer it to every hero we represent in the sale or purchase of a home. You will receive a credit form us at closing equal to 20% of the commission we earn from your transaction. As a buyer, you may use it towards your downpayment, your closing costs, or any other way you wish. As a seller, you will benefit from more cash in your pocket at closing. It is our way of thanking you for your service and for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We will give you this commitment in writing when you become our client!

Below you’ll find detailed information about how the Florida program works. Please reach out if you have any questions. We would be happy to provide answers and honored if you’ll allow us to serve all your real estate needs.

How The Florida Hometown Heroes Program Works!

This program is available to heroes who are first time homebuyers. Anyone who has not owned a home in the last three years meets this requirement. Additionally, professions that qualify for the hometown heroes program are listed in the pdf at the bottom of this page.

“The Florida Hometown Heroes Housing Program makes homeownership more affordable for eligible community workforce members.

This program provides down payment and closing cost assistance to first-time, income-qualified homebuyers so they can purchase a primary residence in the community in which they work and serve.

This loan program also offers a lower first mortgage interest rate and additional special benefits to those who have served or continue to serve their country.

One of the most valuable benefits of the Hometown Heroes Program is the accompanying tax exemption which may save you thousands of dollars at closing. For each $100,000 of your purchase price, this exemption may save you up to $2,000 in documentary stamp tax and intangible tax.

However, please note that a borrower must work fulltime for a business located in Florida to qualify. A verified 35+ hrs. per week (VOE) meets this program requirement. Additionally, their credit must be strong enough to qualify for a mortgage.”1
