Good luck with your first home!
If this will be your first home I suggest you gather all of the objective information you can find because the first choice a buyer makes is one of the most important, loan officer and lender.
Your will find a number of educational informative articles that will serve you well on Your-Road-Home.com. If you read the articles in the numbered order the process of buying a home will become clear and make since.
The articles, Consultation Interviewing Loan Officers, and article #9 about the MCC Tax Credit for first time home buyers will serve you well.
Trulia is also a very good source of information and when you feel you are ready to interview loan officers you will find them from your area on Trulia offering their services.
Best of Luck, Stephen Webber
