We ALL know good lenders who will work with first time buyers....but do you need thousands of recommendations from the thousands of people who read questions on Trulia?
Go to your local bank, your credit union. Call a realtor who may be able to recommend several mortgage consultants.
Buying a home is a bigger investment than buying a car. Yet people do more shopping around when buying a car....
Also check out the various Home Buying Assistance programs offered by your city or county. Often times, they are also linked with mortgage companies who provide a myriad of lending programs.
Take care and good luck!
