The Key for First-time Home Buyers: lower down payments, grants, and more.

Navigating the housing market is especially daunting as a first-time homebuyer, but it can lend a key advantage over the homebuyers; that is access to State Mortgage Programs. These programs are designed to help make buying a house easier and more affordable for first time home buyers by providing low down payments, closing assistance, grants, and competitive or flexible mortgage rates. Many states even offer additional perks for Military, Veterans, specific types of housing, and support needs.
