I teach first time buyer programs at PathStone and I also work closely with Nancy Miersch at M and T bank 585-455-2443. She handles many city grants and first time home buyer programs. Some of the local employers also work with the city on grant monies for first time home buyers.

Do not feel bab about missing the tax credit, with interest rates below 4% you are much farther ahead than the receiving 8k credit. IE a $500 principal and interest payment when the credit was available would get you a $79,105 principal amount, at today's 4% rate the same $500 gets you $104,730. So you can see you now have $25,625 more purchasing power.
There are many different 1st time buyer programs and I can put you in touch with the experts.
