First Time Buyer Mortgage Programs / Down Payment Assistance
These programs are currently NOT available however you should Click here to learn how you might be able to
get up to $8,000 in FREE money if you are a first time home buyer (President Obama's economic stimulus plan)
The following programs are NOT currently available:
If you are a first time buyer or haven't owned a home in the last 3 years...there are special first time buyer mortgage programs designed just for you! If you are eligible, you might be able to reap the benefits
of a lowered interest rate (lower than regular mortgage programs) or a special tax credit that could potentially save you thousands of dollars over the course of your
If you are currently renting...with the use of some of the great first time buyer mortgage programs out there you
might even find
that your house payment may be less than what you are currently paying in rent. As an added bonus, you get to write off
your property taxes and mortgage interest as a tax deduction.
Unfortunately these 1st time buyer mortgage programs aren't highly advertised and for the mortgage lender, it is more work so they may or
may not tell you about them. In addition, they aren't offered by every mortgage lender so if the bank or mortgage company
you select doesn't offer these programs...well, you won't even have a chance to see if you are eligible.
So, if you have NOT owned a home in the past 3 years, you absolutely must contact Steve (below) so you can take advantage of these great 1st time buyer programs before they disappear!
Down payment Assistance Programs
These programs refer to a third party organization that through a gift from the seller, can cover all or part of your
down payment (depending on the terms of the mortgage you are seeking). This, when used in combination with seller paid assistance
with your closing costs, prepaids etc. can enable you to buy a home with very little up front cash. There are always some
expenses so you'll need a little money but depending on the price of the home...you might be surprised at how little you'll
Again, these programs aren't highly advertised and more work for your mortgage lender so your chances of finding out
about them may be limited to a stroke of luck.
It is a GREAT time to buy a home!
This combination of low interest rates and home prices will NOT last forever. Laws are being passed and new programs established to help slow and
even eventually stop the flood of foreclosed homes and when that happens, home prices will rise and this "window of opportunity" will
have passed. So don't wait...NOW is a GREAT time to buy a home!
