The bond program is open again to buyers who are purchasing in Manatee County. There are some qualifications to the program but it is worth a shot if you are planning on buying. Several of my buyers have benefited from this program in the past so I am glad to see it is back. Once the money runs out, it will close again so signing up now is in your best interest.
They are having a workshop on November 4th, 2011. Here is the link to sign up http://www.mymanatee.org/home/government/county-administration/news-release/home-workshop.html
