When you purchase a home using a bond loan, the bond loan acts as a second mortgage. Eligibility, requirements and other details regarding this loan vary by county. If eligible, a bond loan is available on Conventional, VA and FHA loans. Eligible borrowers may receive up to $15,000 in some counties. Borrowers who have not owned property in the past 3 years may be eligible.
