First Time Home Buyer Grants

California First Time Home Buyer Grants are worth your review! Find the best home mortgage grants available below. A complete list of free grants for home buying in California.

Before you obtain a grant and apply for a mortgage, you really need to understand how your credit profile looks.

You want to know your credit score and determine if you need credit repair before proceeding.

Unfortunately, without a minimum credit score of 580, you'll not qualify for these low down payment programs. The FHA 203b loan works well with the various grant options. The higher your credit score is the lower your interest rate.

Purchasing a home in any state is an exciting prospect! Exciting and sometimes daunting!

However, don't let yourself become overwhelmed with the process.

It is my plan to give you some useful information in this article about home mortgage grants which will help you with this exciting and much sought after venture.

Accomplishing your search will be like someone giving you a packaged all gift wrapped in fifty dollar bills. A treasure indeed!

California Grants for Home Buying

To begin with, unfortunately, the State of California does not offer a California first time home buyer grant program for its residents.

But they do have some awesome down payment assistance programs. One is called the California Homebuyer's Downpayment Assistance Program (CHDAP).

There is also a partnership program called AHPP (Affordable Housing Partnership Program) that may be able to assist you. The partnership is with several localities to provide low to moderate income families with some help. Not all localities can offer this program. So you will have to see if your locality is participating in this program.

If you would like to learn more about these programs, you can check them out by clicking here.

It is important to note that there is a plethora of local first time home buyer grant programs available from specific counties and organizations in California. So be sure to check out the specific county your looking to buy in for any available programs to assist you.

Federal Home Mortgage Grants

However, the good news is that the federal government does offer grant assistance for first time home buyers in California. This program is maintained by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and is called the Homes and Communities program.

Their website contains useful information and applications. The website for the grant program maintained by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development can be visited by using this link, HUD Grant Information.

Additional Home Buying Grants

Another website I would recommend that you view is Visit the Government Grants. This website offers a list of all federal government grant programs. It would be a good idea to take some time and browse through this site to see what it offers and the qualifications for application.

Now you know about assistance programs for your state. You still need a mortgage that works with them. Finding a lender who understands your needs can be difficult.

The FHA loan products are very flexible and work well with other assistance programs. Would you like to know where you stand with their requirements? Learn what those requirements are by clicking here.

Perhaps a grant is not available in your state. Or you do not qualify for one. Don't get discouraged. If you still want to save money, check out this page that discusses the zero down payment program.

Otherwise, you may want to look at programs that have low down payment requirements
