Great answers below... you may also ask your lender as to how much you can ask in closing cost / down payment assistance you can build into the purchase price (i.e. have the seller provide from their sales proceeds). That is another source of supplementing your own funds to make it possible to close.

Best of Luck,

The best source for first time buyer programs is http://www.ahahousing.com , this company works with the local communities and their first time buyer programs. I do know that La Mesa City has down payment assistance programs.
You can also use the http://www.yoursdps.info to look for homes in all parts of San Diego County.

Not every city has these programs available but the ones who do have their funds available at a first come basis. Once the funds run out the programs are on hold until the following year, then the funds are replenished . I just spoke with someone in the San Diego housing department last week and they said their funds will be replenished in July.
There is also 1/2 % down-payment program offered by FHA. They only require the buyer to put down .5% and will loan an extra 3% to cover the buyers closing costs.
You can read about the details of this program and many others at my blog on trulia here! http://www.trulia.com/blog/amanda_mitchell/2011/03/san_diego…

Hi there,

Not all lenders work with home buyer programs. The county does have home buyer programs, it just depends what you need, and if the program is funded. I can check it out for you if you like, just let me know via phone or email.

Warm Regards,
Cory

This is a lender question. I have several very good lenders that I have used for over 20 years. Call me and I'll give you their name and phone number. Thank you, Dana & Eva
