Are grants (not loans) available for first-time home buyers?
Let’s say I’m a first time-home buyer with excellent credit (score above 700). I have enough to put 10% down, but I’d really like to put down 20% and mortgage the rest. I know about programs like FHA, etc., and all the options for loans, etc., but are there any actual *grants* available to first time home buyers?
*Thanks for the answers so far – I’ve done some more research and yes, it appears there are grants available for first-time home buyers, depending on area and economic status.
@Janet P. – it appears you are mistaken, you might want to check your sources again.
