Are you ready to buy your dream home but still missing enough savings for a down payment? We can help!
PROGRAM UPDATE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS COVID-19: Due to recent pandemic events affecting the stability of our lives, creating uncertainty in our financial markets and thus impacting its liquidity negatively, this program is now suspended and therefore not available.
So, you make the income, can afford the monthly payment, have saved some money, but need help with down payment and closing costs?
You are in the right place. Clear Lending can help you obtain Down Payment Assistance regardless of whether you are a First Time Home Buyer or not!
The Down Payment Assistance Program provides the maximum amount of 6% based on the final loan amount in the form of a forgivable community second loan. Funds can be used toward your down payment and closing costs. Under this program, you would be able to choose amongst a 30-year fixed-rate FHA, VA, USDA, and Conventional mortgage loan, whichever you can qualify. In case you wonder about the mortgage loan you would be getting, there is no pre-payment penalty or federal recapture tax for the mortgage loan.
Please note currently Clear Lending offers this program only in the following counties:
- Harris County

From the home search process to complete purchase contract documents, inspection, and closing, our agents will guide you, giving peace of mind for a successful experience. Once you apply online will provide you with a detailed explanation about the process.

I want to start this review saying big thanks to the Clear Lending team especially to Joan Gallardo because without him None of this would be possible..., We Choose Clear Lending initially based on positive online reviews, and couldn’t have been more satisfied with the process. While the process of home buying was much more difficult than we’d imagined, based on the levels of competitiveness, Joan gave us excellent guidance, unflagging availability, and deep knowledge about a really wide range of homes that we looked at. He helped us get into our dream home with minimal stress, thanks to him and his team we got the house that I and my family were looking for, he was more than communicative, understanding, and patient as we dragged him through dozens of open houses, Joan always kept a very communicative attitude and had the answer for each of our questions no matter what day of the week was o how late. Most important to us, Joan was always honest with us about what he thought about each property, was always available and helpful, and we always felt that he truly had our best interests at heart. In the future, if we ever decide to move, we will definitely use Joan again to both sell our home and find a new one. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING CLEAR LENDING!!!!
FROM GOOGLE: My experience with Joan and his team was absolutely WONDERFUL! They are all great at what they do! Joan is the best there is, no lie! He really knows the business & the entire process inside and out. He makes the entire process from beginning to close, easy for you! After being told by lender after lender that my husbands credit score was not high enough for a low rate, and being quoted these ridiculously high rates, we were exhausted with the whole thing and about ready to give up. But, then I ran across Clear Lending and Joan told us that was no problem and offered us the best rate that no other lender would even think of offering! From day one, he was available anytime I needed him, & he never made me feel like I was bothering him. He always had time and answered every question that I had. Joan is honest, to the point, & very helpful! I would definitely use him & his team again, and I highly recommend Clear Lending to anyone who wants to buy a home! They are truly the BEST!!!
Joan I really appreciate all the patience you had with us. You gave us hope after we had a bad experience with our bank making sure our loan was first approved before looking for a house. This really brought our hopes up. You made sure houses we went to see met our expectations. Then no matter how late at night or early in the morning you would answer all our calls. Even when we signed the contract on the house you would still keep in touch with us and made sure everything was good. I will be referring you everyone I know and our next home purchase is going to be with you. Thank you so much Joan.
