Maybe you don't need a mortgage.

It probably does not matter if you are a first time homebuyer or not, but are you thinking you need a mortgage?

Hi Vickie
That is a great question, I have to ask the question why do you ask?

yes and no...technically you have inherited the home, so there is no purchase. If there is a outstanding mortgage balance on the home, and you need to re-finance the mortgage into your name, then you would be a first time buyer, but there are no credits for first time home buyers. Your best bet is to find a good local Realtor or lender in your area, and ask them about the specifics...
