Yes there are some wonderful programs for 1st time home buyers. There are even better programs for "Good Neighbors." These are people like Nurses, teachers, policemae & Firefighters to name a few.
Programs are also targeted at certain neighborhoods.
A professional Realtor should be able to put you in touch with a qualified profesional mortgage broker that can work with you to determine the best fit for you.
