This new article shows a few tips on how to obtain first time home owner grants and other ways of financing a newly purchased home.

It can often payoff to consider all your options when trying to finance a home, and a home buyer grant program can be one of these options. These grants are offered from the federal government through the use of non-profit organizations and local governments and before a home owner can be considered eligible for a grant, the home owner must meet a number of criteria. The Loan Love article elaborates on this further: "

Grant programs are not meant to provide 100 percent financing, nor will they replace your need to quality for a home mortgage. Instead, grants and similar programs can provide some financial assistance to be used in conjunction with a mortgage loan.

Keep in mind as well, that anyone taking advantage of federal assistance for buying a home will almost certainly be required to take part in an educational counseling program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These programs are designed to help potential home buyers get their finances in order so that they can qualify for a mortgage loan.

"Depending on the status of the home owner, there are other options that can be made available for home financing. The article mentions that programs such as the HOME Investments Partnership Program can help home owners furnish home-related expenses such as purchasing, building affordable housing for rent or ownership. Other options include making a Individual Development Account, a saving account designed for the purpose of matching deposits of people with low-mid range income for the purpose of making a large purchase like a home. Future home buyers may also want to consider a MCC Tax Credit Program which the article elaborates on further:

"The Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) Tax Credit Program is a federal program administered locally. While not a grant program, it does offer a federal credit that can help reduce your potential federal income tax liability, freeing up available income that can be applied to your monthly mortgage payment. The program is often used by first-time home buyers to convert part of their annual mortgage interest into a direct dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their individual federal income tax return."

These are just a few of the available programs and options first time home buyers can partake in.
