First Time Home Buyer Grants

Colorado First Time Home Buyer Grants available in this Rocky Mountain state! Find the best list of grants for home buying in Colorado.

So you're looking for a first time home buyer grant? 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 credit score of at least 580, you will not be able to qualify for those low down payment programs like the FHA 203b loan that works so well with the various grant programs out there. You want to be able to qualify for these programs and with a higher credit score, you'll qualify for a better interest rate as well.

If you think you are ready, be sure to get a mortgage that works with the various grants or programs for home buying out there.

FHA seems to be the home loan that works best with most of the grant programs you find.

Purchasing a home in any state is an exciting prospect especially in Colorado!

Exciting and sometimes daunting! However, don't let yourself become consumed with the process.

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

Obtaining a grant for the down payment is like receiving a house made with dollar bills! A treasure indeed!

Colorado Grants for Home Buying

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

There are some loan programs available to help you. For example, the "CHFA FirstStep and CHFA FirstStep Plus" program is a two step process to get a great interest rate and a program to assist with the down payment and closing costs. There are some income and price limit requirements you must meet to qualify. Be sure to investigate the limitations associated with this two step process so you won't experience any surprises.

Another loan program you may want to look into is "CHFA HomeOpener and CHFA HomeOpener Plus." This program is also a two step process in order to get assistance for the down payment and closing costs. Once again there are requirements to qualify and limitations you should be familiar with.

If you would like to investigate these programs, click here.

Federal Home Mortgage Grants

However, the good news is that the federal government does offer grant assistance for first time home buyers in Colorado. 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.

It is important to note that there are a plethora of local first time home buyer grant programs available from specific counties and organizations in Colorado.

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
