There are many options available to you as a first time home buyer. Depending on your credit scores and income, you may qualify for a Florida grant program for up to $7,500 in assistance as well as the $8,000 First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit.
Bank foreclosures and short sales present a great opportunity for you to purchase a home at a very attractive price.

The biggest assistance is the first time homebuyers tax credit of $8000K as long as you haven't owned a home for 3 years. It expires December 1, 2009 so you have to close before then. There are also programs through the city, NECCA, some banks have bond money. Your best bet is to get hooked up with a good realtor and mortgage consultant to help you with those programs.
