GSFA Platinum® Down Payment Assistance Program

Homeownership May be Just Around the Corner

Don't just take our word for it ...

Hear What GSFA Platinum® customers have to say.

My wife Liza and I started living in a 1 bedroom apartment that was affordable at the time but as the years gone by rent increased drastically realizing we were just throwing money away. We wanted a place we could call home for me, my wife and our dog "Baby Boo." Buying a house was definitely a challenge as "first time" home buyers. We were nervous if our funds were sufficient enough for down payment and closing cost until our loan officers Cristi Forsythe from cornerstone mortgage surprised us with GSFA Platinum down payment assistance. We were ecstatic!! Yes!! We would absolutely recommend this program to others. That it helped and worked wonders for us! When we closed escrow we both cried thanking God we are finally complete because of this program that we were blessed with and that was introduced to us by our Realtor and cornerstone mortgage! Thank you!

I decided to purchase my first home because I was tired of renting and I found out my rent was increasing for the umpteenth time. Some of the challenges I faced were: not having enough funds for both my down payment & closing costs. I only had about half of what I needed. It almost seemed the idea of owning a home would be further out of my reach when my loan officer, Rebecca, informed me that owning a home was a possibility with a GSFA grant. I just about cried. The moment I was handed the keys to my new home, I felt such happiness because I finally did it!. Thank you, GSFA!

We, the Hunts, cannot fathom our words of appreciation for GSFA's generous gift of assistance towards our home loan. We were inspired to purchase a home to grow together as a family and build our own private and personal oasis to feel happy and humbled from the outside world. We faced numerous challenges during this process but most cumbersome was the amount of documentation/paperwork needed to push our dreams through to reality. We first heard about the GSFA grant through our loan advisor and we couldn't have been more thrilled! A penny saved is a penny earned! Knowing about this program really helped us get our feed in the doors to our new home. We have been looking forward to investing in our future home for years and are blessed with GSFA's outreach. Please, we recommend chasing one's dreams with homeownership and recommend others accept the wonderful opportunity as well. Thank you tremendously.
