The prospect of buying a home for the first time is daunting. No matter how much financial preparation and scheduling you have done, it seems like there are never enough resources. Don’t overlook some of the most common incentives available now to facilitate the buying process.
1. Figure out how much you can afford to spend on a mortgage. This is a good way to wade into the pool of potential first time buyer incentives. The more familiar you are with your finances, the better acquainted you can get with incentives that apply to your specific price range.
2. The Help to Buy Program. This program now offers additional assistance to new buyers by providing mortgages with lower deposits. The supply of housing has increased the availability and selection of homes, and made mortgages more affordable.
3. Don’t forget that patience is an important virtue for every buyer. Take time to find all the available assistance you can, even if it means letting your first choice house slip through your fingers. If you can secure a lower down payment with federal assistance, you’ll be more comfortable in the long run.
