Your best bet is FHA. The down payment is low at 3.5% and the seller can pay for your closing costs. You might also want to check with your state to see if they have any first time buyer programs. Here in CA we have a great program called CALhfa for first time buyers. In some areas the financing can go as high as a 102%. Check with the housing authority in the city you are thinking of buying in. They sometimes offer programs for first time buyers. Good Luck!

There are many government and first time home owners grants and programs out there. Also, if you are a US Veteran (which is my passion) please feel free to give me a call anytime. Our Mortgage Officer is one of the best !

There is a discount mortgage rate program for buyers in PA and there are usually closing cost assistance programs by county. You can go to my website and learn more about the programs as well as get pre-qualified for them. http://www.yourlifemoves.com/buyers_page.shtml

Also, for the month of August only, Prosperity Mortgage - mortgage company affiliated with Long & Foster- is offering a 1% rate buy down for 1 year for FREE. You must be a new applicant and be getting an FHA loan.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for further assistance with these programs.
