Luke, Home Buyer in 10038

Does a first time home buyer also get to put 3.5% down or is that just with this $8000 incentive?

A first time home buyer can put down 3.5% if they are using an FHA mortgage. The tax credit has nothing to do with the down payment. At this time, the purchaser needs to close by November 30,2009 in order to receive the credit.

the $8,000 tax credit for first time buyers and the 3.5% minimum downpayment for an FHA loan are independent of one another, meaning that you can do both.
