If you are a Mercer University employee, you will be glad to know that there is a Down Payment Assistance Program to help you buy a house in our neighborhood page.

You need to contact the Benefits Office and talk to Gina Hall at (478) 301-2787 to know what type of properties qualify for this stipend. It can apply to an existing house or the construction of a future floor plan of your preference.

Several full-time faculty and staff have taken advantage of this wonderful program; you can be the next. Believe us, it’s not to good to be true!

One of the institutions involved in this Down Payment Program is Historic Macon Foundation, a well known non-profit organization engaged in revitalize historic buildings.

You could own a charming historic house with all the inside benefits of a new one (ask about the 8 year property tax exemption), or have a brand new home.

Give a look at their listings or contact Historic Macon at (478) 742-5084. They are located at the Sidney Lanier Cottage in 935 High St.

All new construction in Beall’s Hill must be approved by Planning and Zoning. There are a number of pre-approved plans available.
