What kind of help is available for a new homebuyer?
Whether this is your first home or your fourth, you may not have to wait until you can save the traditional 20% down payment to qualify for a mortgage loan. There are many public and private organizations that will assist you in buying a home, even if you don’t have a lot of cash on hand for a big down payment and closing costs.
With insurance and participation in a “low down payment” mortgage program, you may be able to purchase a home with less than 5% down. Federal, state and local government agencies, and non-profit organizations now offer advice, counseling, insurance and financial incentives. Support is available for first-time homebuyers, women, low-and moderate-income individuals and workers in certain professions.
If you can show your income is high enough to make the monthly payments, you may qualify for a low down payment loan. Take a look at the following descriptions to see which of these programs can help you lower the initial cost of purchasing a home.
