Despite strained budgets and widespread state and local belt-tightening, funding for first time home buyer programs remains readily available.
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2013 -- First time home buyer programs remain available in most states, despite the problems caused by the subprime mortgage crisis, housing price decline, record number of foreclosures, and fiscal cliff belt-tightening of late. Jennifer Cribsly, a successful real estate investor and creator of the site first time home buyer, is a first time home buying expert who discusses how individuals, couples and families can tap into thousands of dollars of assistance available through various grants, down payment programs, and other state and local first time home buyer incentives.
Her website features a state directory of all the programs available in each state, right down to the local level. Besides statewide programs, many cities and counties have additional programs above and beyond those offered by state agencies. The directory is very user friendly, easy to navigate, and registration is not required.
Programs and grants available to prospective home owners are arranged by state and include full contact details, program descriptions, dollar amount of assistance available to each buyer, and hyperlinks to application pages. Everything that the first time home buyer needs in order to tap into both public and private funding sources is provided in a comprehensive manner.
The website also covers low-interest loans that feature below market interest rates. Many localities offer special loans to help the first time property buyer with the down payment. As an added incentive, some of these loans programs are forgiven if the buyer remains living in the property for a set number of years, typically five.
