If you're purchasing a home, my first suggestion would be to find a realtor that you feel comfortable with and trust and then hire that agent as a buyer's agent to represent you in finding a home and negotiating the best price. That will probably save you money or get your more house for the same money. There are several grant programs at the federal, state and local levels. Try SONYMA (State of New York Mortgage Association). They have closing cost assistance. FHA also has closing cost assistance - you can finance over the purchase price to assist with closing costs. If I can help, please contact me.

You could also look at a FHA 203k loan or a USDA Rural housing loan depending on your area.

I am a mortgage broker. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

I know about Neighborhood Housing Services' service called Home First , also look up NACA and ACORN. These are organizations that help you with closing costs after they educate you and have you establish yourself as a reliable risk. It takes a little time but well worth it if you can't afford closing or down pay.
