First-Time Home Buyer Grants

Do you yearn for the security of home ownership? Having a place of your own, in which you can set roots, create an individual space, or raise a family? Government grants exist for first-time homebuyers to help you initiate the process of getting into a home.

Although many organizations offer these housing grants, the government is a major source of free grants for first-time home buyers. Grants for individuals seeking a home purchase are available in all fifty states.

Who Qualifies as First-Time Home Owners?

Of course, if you have never bought a home before, you are a first-time home buyer. But others can qualify, too. Many programs consider an applicant to be a first-time homeowner if he/she hasn’t owned a home in the past three years, or if the home owned is a mobile home that’s portable. So it’s important that you keep your mind open to the possibility that government grants for first-time home buyers may be right for you.

Now is a Great Time to Buy

With the housing market’s decline, home prices have dropped—in some areas, as much as 75%. With so many homes foreclosed and vacant, prices are low and it’s a great time to buy. With such ideal timing, it’s important to move forward—right now. Take advantage of first-time homeowner grants or personal grants and create a home ownership opportunity for yourself.

What Expenses Can These Grants Cover?

Housing grants and personal grants for first-time homeowners can be used for:

  • Down payment and percentage of purchasing price of the home
  • Closing costs
  • Educational courses meant to make you a more knowledgeable home owner
  • Renovations and home repair
  • Purchase of new construction homes
  • Purchase of existing homes
  • Debt consolidation, to help people with financial trouble stay in their homes

Additionally, home ownership loans for first-time homebuyers almost always have a lower interest rate and less fees than traditional loans.

What Can I Buy?

These types of grants for individuals can be used to purchase homes, townhomes, and condos, in cities, suburbs, and rural locations.
