First Time HomeBuyer Assistance

Are you still renting??  Dreaming of owning your own home but not sure of the process or how to come up with the cash for down payments and closing costs?  Want to own your own home but afraid to take the leap?

There are several First-Time HomeBuyer programs out there to take advantage of, some of which will grant you funds to help cover the initial costs of buying your first home.  One program is the American Dream Downpayment Initiative, signed in 2003, which allocates grants to first time home buyers for through 2007.  With this grant, you can buy a home or condo, and receive up to $10,000 or 6% of the cost of your home, to help cover your down payment and closing costs.  What could be better?

If you're still waffling about getting out of the renting rut, give any one of us a call and we can walk you through the process, as well as provide you with lender contacts, so that you can easily be on your way to owning your own home.  Our lenders will work to get you the best mortgage and first time home buyer programs, and we at the Butterworth Group can take you through the process of buying your first home with ease.

The market is slow right now, so it's a great time to buy and in a few years, your investment will be worth a good deal more than you'll be paying for it today (that's the Real Estate forecast!).  Give any of us a call and we'll get you on your way to owning your very own home!
