Michigan
First Time Home Buyer Grants

Michigan first time home buyer grants are available for the taking! Find the coolest list of grants for home buying in Michigan here. A comprehensive list of home mortgage grants or programs below.

So, you are considering the purchase of a home in Michigan. Good choice!!!

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.

With so many lenders to choose from, you want to be sure and select the right one.

Michigan Grants for Home Buying

To begin with, unfortunately, the State of Michigan does not offer a Michigan first time home buyer grant program for its residents. But it does have some other programs to help you buy your home.

One such program is called "MI First Home" or "MI Next Home." It is a program that not only assists first time buyers, but repeat buyers as well. This program may be used for up to $7,500 in down payment assistance or some closing costs. The program is not a grant, but actually a second mortgage. There are restrictions and requirements that must be met.

Federal Home Mortgage Grants

However, the good news is that the federal government does offer grant assistance for first time home buyers in Michigan. 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 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 several local first time home buyer grant programs available from specific private organizations in Michigan.

Remember, you do need a lender who will work with any of these programs. Even if you qualify for a grant, you still have to qualify for a loan. FHA is one of the best for working with various assistance programs.

When I was in the business in Michigan, I used Mission Of Peace for down payment and closing costs assistance.
