Hi Samantha, yes you can get a first time home buyer loan on any home. Although, buying a foreclosure, unless you qualify for one of the homepath properties, you may have to get an FHA 203k loan to rehabilitate or repair if nothing more what it takes for the property to meet the minimum requirements. If I can answer any add'l questions, I'd be happy to help. Best wishes otherwise, Kimberly Lawson, Licensed Mortgage Loan Originator - Ohio only.
